Description

11 months ago
Since bug 269442, the find toolbar support a new mode, called 'Whole Words', which only matches strings surrounded by word-breaking characters, like spaces or punctuation marks in latin-derived languages.

As you might know, this is the default matching mode for the find toolbars in Webkit/ Blink based browsers.

The implementation uses the term 'entireword', not 'wholeword' as you might think. This is due to historical reasons that are not very interesting for this bug ;-)
