This has been happening as far back as I can remember, and it's always really bothered me (since I greatly prefer the keyboard over the mouse). 1.) Go into bookmarks. 2.) Do a single Find (Ctrl+F), using search criteria that will match multiple bookmarks. For instance, do a search on "http". 3.) The first item found will be correctly highlighted and selected (you can see the dotted outline above and below it). 4.) Do a Find Again (Ctrl+G). The next matching bookmark is correctly found and highlighted. However, it is *NOT* selected. You can see that the first bookmark that was found with the Ctrl+F search still has the dotted outline. At this point, if you use an up/down arrow key or press Enter (etc...), then your keyboard input will be acting on the first found bookmark, not the highlighted one. This is annoying, because I have to keep switching between keyboard and mouse (I have to click on the second found bookmark before being able to load it with the Enter key).

The correct place to report 4.x bugs is http://help.netscape.com/forms/bug-client.html .
