Description

I attempted to search for 1.4 and the . was interpreted as RegExp and found all characters between 1 and 4. I attempted to escape the . with the string 1\.4 and the search told me I must escape backslashes. 1\\.4 does not return what I want.

Here's an example where this: https://www-bd.fnal.gov/Elog/?orEntryId=134336&searchString=1%5C%5C.5
should return this: https://www-bd.fnal.gov/Elog/?orEntryId=134336
but nothing is returned.
