Ctrl-G does not find subsequent words. In the new toolbar at the bottom of the browser, only the Highlight button works (but it works great and is really cool!). Find seems to work great in Windows. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Type Ctrl-F, enter a common word 2.Type Ctrl-G (nothing happens) 3.Press Find Next & Find Previous buttons (again, nothing) Actual Results: Finds only first word Expected Results: Ctrl-g should find subsequent instances of that word Running Gentoo Linux, built from source. Built with CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -fprefetch-loop-arrays -fforce-addr -falign-functions=4". Reproducible on vanilla firefox downloaded from mozilla.org
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040916 Firefox/0.10 I am seeing the same problem here. Find works for me on Windows XP and Mac OS X, but not linux.
iirc, there's a gentoo bug on this being broken in the gentoo source. I might be wrong. Can you replicate this on a mozilla.org binary?

I just downloaded this and tried it w/ a mozilla binary, and it does not display the problem. I believe you're right that it is a gentoo problem.
I am not using Gentoo. I installed from freshrpms. I will install the mozilla.org binary and try again.
Using the firefox installer I reinstalled and it works now.
(In reply to comment #3) > I just downloaded this and tried it w/ a mozilla binary, and it does not display > the problem. I believe you're right that it is a gentoo problem. This bugs appears also on Mandrake. The strange thing is that I've two very similar computers (with the same binaries) and the "search" works only on one of them, the other one have this bug. It might come from the preferences but I've done a diff and couldn't find anything suspect :-(
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040923 Firefox/0.10 Built on Redhat7.3. Unable to find, only highlight. (The only functional item in new toolbar is "highlight"). Old find (in ver0.9.3) worked correctly in same build environment.
If you build yourself, please attach the output of about:buildconfig as a text file. I think if you don't build typeaheadfind it'll hork.
Created attachment 160046 [details] Build environments, mozilla binary & gentoo (broken find) The top about:buildconfig is the mozilla binary. The next one is from gentoo which has the broken find.
Funny thing I noticed about the two buildconfigs is that the mozilla binary does not add 'typeaheadfind' as one of its extensions. I'll try rebuilding without typeaheadfind in gentoo and see if that might be the problem.
Yes, it seems to be related to the fact that some Linux Distributions still enable the extension typeaheadfind. This seems to break the find-functionality that is now included in Firefox. For Gentoo there is already a bug reported at http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64196 and it contains a patch that fixes this.
Created attachment 160254 [details] about:buildconfig from (working) build on Redhat 7.3 Removing typeaheadfind from the --enable-extensions in my .mozconfig, followed by a clean build (gmake -f client.mk clean && gmake -f client.mk), resulted in a working find.
ah, right, typeaheadfind shouldn't be built, since we use a variant on that as a core component now. resolving invalid, since the default .mozconfig is what people are in theory supposed to build with. bsmedberg is working on better sanity checking for configure under another bug.
