If you activate a link-only search with the ' key, the URL is displayed for
links which match your search keyword(s) in the statusbar. If you start the
search with CTRL+F or / it is not displayed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a search with CTRL+ F or /
2. Enter a search term which will match a hyperlink on the page
3. Hyperlink href should be displayed in statusbar, but is not.




I think this is a major bug, since it's got to be a security concern that the
href is not shown.

It's not really the same bug.
Bug 250482 addresses the lack of feedback for search strings, this is specific
to text searching, since the URL is shown when performing a "link only search"
(hit ' to open the Find toolbar).
Could it be related to Bug 250922, i.e. non-links-only searches don't recognize
link texts as links, and therefore don't display hrefs in the status bar?
Not a bug for Ctrl+F since the found link isn't focused. The FAYT part was fixed
in bug 307874.
