User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0
Build ID: 20140918174809

Steps to reproduce:

Select a word in a page.
Open the Find Bar and Highlight All.
Close the Find Bar.
Select a different word and reopen the Find Bar. 



Actual results:

Matches of the *first* search are highlighted, whereas 'Matches Counter' reflects the *second* search.
Is this a regression (did it use to work)?

I've checked it with Pale Moon (based on FF 24); - Matches of the *first* search are highlighted.
Yet, the new 'Matches Counter' reflecting the *second* search enhances the need to clear the previous highlights.
