Pasted into search criteria: “Wilmington “Du Pont de Nemours Cemetery”. This is the dropdown options. Why the bizarre options? I have quite a few places that were moved to Jerusalem!
I know, you can’t replicate but at least you see what I see 🙂

The full answer would require me to better understand what you are attempting to do. My first thought, given the numbers you quote, is that you want to achieve something far more complex than this quite basic tool is designed for.
You also haven’t confirmed what version of kiwitrees this relates to. Can I assume this is the beta version of 3.3.10 I have given you?
If it is, there is a change in the that code, unrelated to MySQL, that may be causing your problem. Go to Administration > your family tree > Edit options. Right near the bottom of the page is an setting titled “Options for autocomplete on places”. It may be set to “advanced” by default. Change it to “Basic” and see if that helps.
While you are in that area, having “Geonames” enabled is probably not useful for an internally focussed search/replace operation, so disable that while you are doing this work.
If that doesn’t help, give me a more detailed explanation of your aims in this process. I might be able to help with a better solution.Nigel

Suggestion is for kiwitrees-nova as with the first one I made. I currently run 3.3.9. The test o 3.3.10 will be done in time for Nov 16 when upgrade by web host is done.
The image is drop down that happens as I begin to type place name but somehow all get Jerusalem (or Hungary) added. bizarre. It’s not exclusive to S&R. It shows up many times when entering place names in records. I’ve just never taken time to raise issue. Yes, my site was set for “advance”, but not intentionally. Will see what happens when I return to it.
The reset/clear request is simply to allow doing multipe place name search and replace. Just happens I’m doing massive one which I’ve actually exported and am doing in BBEdit online.
