If you search in the style editor, there is not way to tell of there are additional multiple results, or if/how you can get to the next result.

The keybindings are logical ( cmd+f|g ) but aren't discoverable as the UI doesn't indicate what is going on.

This works for me (Style Editor - Shift+F7) > Ctrl+F > type the word to search > Enter > match(es) get highlighted.
Multiple matches get highlighted in the editor, yes. The UX for multiple matches is still very poor.

1. The search closes when hitting Enter. Therefore you have to press Ctr+F > Enter repeatedly to switch through the different results if you don't know about Ctrl+G (which is not discoverable). (bug 934624)
2. It is very hard to see which match is currently highlighted.
3. There is no indication for the overall count of matches.

The first one is already covered by the other bug, though the last two should be improved in this one.
