Details

[Affected versions]:
- Nightly 52.0a1

[Affected platforms]:
- All

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Launch Nightly 
2. Open https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox
3. Open Find Bar (Ctrl+F) and input really slow "Firefox"
4. Delete some of the letters and write them back 
5. Observe the first search match (while writing Firefox and while deleting it letter by letter)
6. Observe the other white highlighted search matches (while writing Firefox and while deleting it letter by letter)

[Expected result]:
- The highlighting is smooth and prompt (in both steps 5 and 6)

[Actual result]:
- In step 5 the yellow highlight jumps as a new letter is added (the letters seems to be Bold for a fraction of second) 
- In step 6 - a slight lag can be seen from the moment you write a letter in the search input box and the moment the letter is highlighted
