    Ok 2 macs both with Itunes 11.1 both freeze up on the search. Library has 42000 tracks. Clicking the option not to search entire library worked. But wow really itunes is really starting to look kind of bad at this point. Ok Apple do something! Fix it! I was enjoying it and had very few lock up issues and then when the new update happened bam nothing frozen both computers.

    85,000 songs on external drive

    Early 2008 iMac

    SSD drive internally


    Search is a joke even with "Search Entire Library" unchecked.


    When looking for a song I select only songs and type in the  name and press enter. ALL my songs show with no filtering at all..!!


    Sometimes it seems to work if I delete the search term (in this case the song name i was looking for) and type it back in again and press enter. Or if I switch back and forth between "song" and "artist" and randomly attempt deleting and retyping at the same time (no recognizable pattern figured out yet).


    I can't believe how bad itunes 11 is..!  I do like the Up Next feature but the rest has made it unusable.  I know people didn't like the older iTunes but at least it was functional.

    Don't press enter! Just add name.
