Bug Description

Suppose I want to find all the information on Kindle devices in the calibre User Manual's (https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/calibre.epub) FAQ, for which I do the following:

1. Open the manual in E-book viewer.
2. Press Ctrl-t to display the Table of Contents and click on the "Frequently Asked Questions" item. The manual view changes to display the beginning of the respective chapter.
3. Press Ctrl-f to open the Search pane, type "kindle" and press Enter.

The viewer finds 94 matches, selects the first one in the search results and jumps to its position in the book. To get to the matches from the FAQ chapter I first have to find the first of them by hovering the mouse over the ToC items in the search results.

This isn't really convenient. Perhaps, searching should select the first match from the current position, not the beginning of the book, or, maybe, this behavior should be controlled with a checkbox.

Calibre version: 5.11,
OS: Windows 10 Home 1803.
