Steps to reproduce:
Build ID 20190619235627
Replicated on W7, W10, and clean W10 with FF fresh install straight out of the box.
NOTE-1: Linux Mint 18.3 FF 67.04 for Linux Mint V1.0 All good works as it should.
It seems to be a FF for Windows Issue.
NOTE-2: Microsoft Edge has no issues as seen in the video in the second half.
NOTE-3: Same Pdf file used on all tests.
As seen in Video:
-search first word 'User' it's on first page > no other instances found?
-Search number '306' located on last two pages > Not found
-Go to last page > clear search > then 306 search > Found.
-Search word comfort, again failure. In the video when on the page it also seems to start to find it on the page but then it fails, to many instances on one page?.
MS Edge finds all instances of all words.
This seems to be a long standing bug possibly related to these three:
Bug 839096 Searching for consecutive words is broken in pdf.js
Bug 1020254 Searching for the same word twice in a pdf is not working properly
Bug 1486975 Windows 10 kills pdf Document word search (ctrl+F) forces Microsoft Edge
Fails to find search words not in focus page or multiple instances of the search word. Also fails to find search word when page is in focus but there are multiple instances of the word.
Find the search word.
show how many instances.
