+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #29696 +++
The input area of the search box (at the wiki http://www.altlinux.org ) is not visible in w3m or emacs-w3m. So, it's impossible to go to a specific page (by name) in these text-mode browsers.
In some other text-mode browsers, this area is visible: lynx-2.8.6-alt7.rel.2 , elinks-0.12-alt0.9 .
This is similar to the bug of w3m not showing a text-box for Gmail/Google authentication from a while ago.
Here is that Gmail sign-in bug: https://bugzilla.altlinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29498 .
The problem persists with w3m-0.5.3-alt1 . (But the search on the wiki works in elinks-0.12-alt0.11 , so it is in principle possible in console browsers.)
The same problem can be observed now at https://en.wikipedia.org , too.
