I’m trying to press ‘Shift+Enter’ to find the previous result on the page, but it’s not working. I don’t think I’m overriding that key combination, so IDK why it wouldn’t work. Is that still the right key combination?

If your Search Mode is Regular Expression, it isn’t going to work, as backward searching for this has been (mostly) disabled due to unexpected results in certain cases.
I think the goal might have been to stop people from reporting issues when a strange result was obtained. Seems to have had the opposite effect as more issues are reported about it not doing anything (like yours).

To re-enable backwards regex, see the official docs at https://npp-user-manual.org/docs/preferences/#preferences-for-advanced-users

As I’ve said before, sometimes change is “implemented to make the majority more happy, which had the side effect of making the minority more unhappy.” – except, in this case, I’m wondering if the change wasn’t for the minority, making the majority unhappy. :-)
