However, I don't remember how I did that (it was years ago) and I can't find anything about it in my bash configuration files, so I'm at a loss.

If you ever figure this out, and could post it, I would love to be able to mimic that behavior, it sounds very helpful.

Do you have "history-search-backward" or "history-search-forward" in any of your ~/. files?

Do you have a ~/.inputrc perhaps
