When I use Vim's search feature (the
/ key from insert mode), somehow the text I search for is placed in Safari's search bar whenever I switch back to an open Safari window.
I started Vim via
vim -u NONE to ensure the behavior is not caused by anything in my vimrc file, and my only active Safari plugins are "AdBlock Icon" and "AdBlock Engine."
I might be unaware that this is an intended feature (of Vim?), but scanning Vim's relevant help pages didn't immediately turn up anything useful.
Other potentially relevant details:
- Terminal: I'm using Apple's default Terminal app
- Browser: behavior also occurs when using Chrome or Firefox browsers
- OS: macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6
