"Find on this page..." tool will not search for lowercase/uppercase forms of an
entered string, even if the option to do so is checked. Ex: If the word 'find'
is entered, it will not find 'Find' in the document.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to any document with text on it.
2. Go to the "Find in this page..." tool.
3. Check "Match upper/lower case".
2.Choose a word and in find, type the word, or a letter in the word in uppercase
if the word is lowercase, or the oposite if the word on the document is lowercase.

Actual Results:  
The Find tool would not find the uppercase of a lowercase word, or the lowercase
of an uppercase word.

Expected Results:  
It should have found the uppercase and lowercase strings that matched the
entered string.

I am using the default theme.
This will happen on any document.
> 3. Check "Match upper/lower case".

Checkin this option means the case of the matches (upper or lower) must match
the case of your string (upper or lower)....  Sounds like you want to _uncheck_ it.

"Match upper/lower case"
From the helpfile, "finding text within a web page":

Choose from the following search options:

    * Match upper/lower case: Choose this to search for a word or phrase that
matches the word you typed exactly (including uppercase and lowercase letters).
