[Affected versions]:
- Nightly 51

[Affected platforms]:
- Windows 10, Ubuntu 16.04 and Mac OS X 10.11

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Open Nightly (be sure you have "findbar.modalHighlight" and "findbar.highlightAll" set to true).
2. Go to this SVG page: https://bug1294843.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=8780694
3. Press CTRL+F to open Find toolbar.
4. Search for any word that appears on the page (e.g "ion").

[Expected result]:
- The background is dimmed, the matches are highlighted, first one with a yellow background and the other ones with a high contrast background.

[Actual result]:
- The background is not dimmed
- the matches are not properly highlighted: 
  -- on Windows 10 the first match is not yellow, but becomes invisible as you type, and the rest off them are not highlighted at all
  -- on Ubuntu the first match term is written with white characters as you type, and the rest are not visible at all
  -- on Mac OS X - the highlight is not done at all

[Regression range]:
- I will investigate and post the results as soon as possible.
This has _never_ worked before.

Please see the actual results that I get on Windows 10 when I set the preferences "findbar.modalHighlight" and "findbar.highlightAll" to false.
Well, that's certainly a surprise to me. Looking into it.
