Find Toolbar: URL not displayed for text search
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.0+ 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. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 307874 ***
