What did you do? (steps to reproduce)

this is tab 2:
open in new tab a bug link from tab 1

i did not close find in page on tab 1

Actual results:

i close my previously opened bug tab [ tab 2 ]

i return to tab 1

the find in page at bottom of page has disappeared on tab 1

i again try find in page & it shows only one result [ see attachment ]

i close tab 2 showing one result

Hello and thanks for report!

Tested with two devices with android 5.1 (Huawei MediaPad M2 and Huawei Honor) following your steps and I cannot reproduce. 

I was able to reproduce the issue if I close the tab 2 from device back button or if I go to tab tray -> close tab 2. Following this scenario find-in-page was not displayed for tab 1. And searching again displayed the right results.
