When I open a new tab (with ctrl+t) and try to find a link (using fast find) the
search is done in the old tab, no the new one.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox and open any website (i.e. www.mozilla.org)
2. Hit Ctrl+T to open a new tab
3. Use mouse and click on address bar and write the new website url (i.e.
4. Try to access any link on the new tab (www.openoffice.org), typing "home"

Actual Results:  
Firefox doesn't find the link "Home" in new tab (www.openoffice.org), instead it
find the home (sometimes)

Expected Results:  
Firefox should find the link "Home" in new tab (www.openoffice.org).

website opens.
