User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

Suppose I am searching for a keyword "Class" in a loaded page, Firefox search
also shows me "Classified", "Classification" etc.,

There should be an option to match the whole word only as provided in many other
applications

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a normal file
2. CTRL + F search for a keyword say Class



Actual Results:  
Firefox search also shows me "Classified", "Classification" etc.,

Expected Results:  
I only wanted an exact match for the word I typed

There should be an option to "match the whole word only" as provided in many
other applications
