User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050516 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050516 Firefox/1.0.4 When using search toolbar to search text that are inside a frame, the search toolbar always fails to find the desired text. I have tested this on all the webpages that I know have frames, and the search toolbar failed to find text inside those frames Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Goto a page with a text frame like www.google.ca 2. In the searchbar on google.ca(not the one built into firefox on the upper-right hand corner)type any random text ex: "Spongebob is cool" :) 3. Press Ctrl+F and look up the random text you put in the searchbar ex. Ctrl+F+Spongebob is cool. Actual Results: The random text for ex: "Spongebob is cool" will not be found. Expected Results: Firefox should have found the random text that is in the text frame. This can be very annoying when you are sending someone a long email, and you want to find a word. The workaround is copying the whole email and pasting it into OpenOffice or MSWord and searching from there. I also tested this bug in Internet Explorer, and it currently does not have "searching in textframe" option either. Not a major problem, but one that should be considered for revising.
