So I would have to type each of these in again and again. The search window could allow me to set up multiple searches IN DIFFERENT COLORS, simultaneously. Google does a thing like this. If you search for a bunch of terms and they are found in a pdf, google will produce an html page with EACH term in a different color. The results are spectacularly easy to read.

Is this similar to bug 65876?
I found bug 65876 but could not make heads or tails of it, especially given the unanswered (for more than a year!) comment, "From Erich 'Ricky' Iseli 2002-09-27 06:38 What's this about? can anyone enlighten me?" ... so I figured it was better to suggest it than it be lost ...
This seems to be about the "Find in This Page..." dialog, correct? (is which case it is not a duplicate of bug 65876) -> over to XP Apps

Confirmed as RFE. Should this depend on bug 65876 ? Reporter: could you please clearify the subject a bit ? Like 'searching on page should support logical (AND OR NOT) operators" or something like that.

Well, there could be AND and OR, that would be nice, but it was not what I was thinking. When I do searches the words show up with a green rectangle behind them. I don't recall if this can be set or not. The kind of search I was thinking of would be like an OR search except that each term would be assigned its own color. How about we assign t to be green and i to be red. Then "Something like this." would be rendered: "Some<font color = "green">t</font>h<font color = "red">i</font>ng l<font color = "red">i</font>ke <font color = "green">t</font>h<font color = "red">i</font>s." That's what google does for multiple search terms in PDFs that are converted to html for display, except it's for words.
I closed out bug 65876 Multiple search items as you've described would require a completely different dialog. It really wouldn't be sufficiently useful to include in the suite, although you could do an extension. Matching a regular expression might suffice and would be more useful (although most people don't understand regex) and is already filed as bug 32641. Highlighting all matches of a single item is bug 62467. closing this out as WONTFIX
