Bug 58305 in SeaMonkey has been fixed, but Firefox either broke recently, or hasn't been fixed. The fix for 58305 should fix this or provide pointers as to how to fix it. Coudn't find an extension or dupe, e.g. searching for 58305/Find in page/typeaheadfind in Firefox, or Bug 189039. This is a vital feature for web applications such as webmail, wikis, blogs & webmin. Among the good ideas and bugspam: A popup-blocker-hindered-workaround from http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58305#c52 : a searchtextarea bookmarklet http://home.hccnet.nl/m.wargers/bookmarklets/searchtextarea.htm . CC'ing 58305's fixer - hope you don't mind, RBS.
Oops - found the dupe. SeaMonkey has been fixed (Bug 58305) - reuse that code/ use it as a pointer - good discussion of the coding issues there, and working code. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 252371 ***
