I have multiple playlists.

Now when I enter a search pattern in the search entry field at the top it works.

But when I click on another Playlist (read: when I switch to another playlist) then the current search pattern is (SOMETIMES) not kept but another old, search word from the past is shown.

How can I force MB to use the most recent search pattern in ALL playlists?

Searches are always specific to each tab as far as I know.
To do otherwise will require a new post in the Wishlist forum.

I am NOT switching the tab. I am still in tab "Playlists". So according to your answer the search pattern should be kept.
But it doesn't.

Thats why I remember from the past too.

But I must have changed accidentally some settings.

Any other suggestion?

I meant playlist, sorry.
When changing between playlists (and other node types), MusicBee keeps the previous search term that was applied to filter the selected playlist.
I'm not aware of this behaviour having changed recently and can't see anything in the release notes.
I'm also sure there's no setting that controls it. The only settings related to the Search field are those in the little magnifying glass menu.

So the suggestion remains the same. I can see how it would be handy to search for a given track across all playlists.
