Okay, you want to use another search word and reverse the direction... oops that dialog is on the way - Click it. IMPROVEMENT THe extra dialog to announce the error condition is not strictly necessary. Firefox could use the tab's status bar (at the bottom) to announce that there are no (more) matches and keep the Open dialog visible. This would remove the extra step to force to close the error dialog. Especially if it is needed to type several words before correct place is found, it is unconvenient to be have to close the "error dialog" all the time. For novices this is fine. But offer for experienced users an option to use status br indication instead. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

The not found message should be part of the Find Toolbar. Down with annoying dialogs. See bug 234048 for what was proposed for old Find dialog, which could be implemented similarly for the toolbar.
