I will attach a very small testcase which shows that a search in the web-page
(in that case with search word 'afasel' will show a wrong result.

Could you please provide a bit more details? Expected results, actual results
and whatnot? I'm really not sure what you expect to happen here. For me,
searching for "afasel" highlights the word across the line break and /does/ find
the word.

sorry. Yes, the word "afasel" is found. But I don't expect that because afasel
is no word in this document.
There are two words "bla" and "fasel" so "afasel" doesn't exist. It shouldn't
find anything.
IMHO, this is an invalid/wontfix request.

At least it's not a "Search" bug. -> Find Toolbar or Find Fast?

Well, we do not do the same thing for new lines, and since a <br> is technically
a new line...

Did anyone notice that if you write "fasel" in the search and go to the start of the input and write "bl", nothing is found. so far, so good. when you complete the word with an "a" to "blafasel", the word is found and marked, but the search box stays red, claiming that it started on top. Bug or feature? 

Anyhow, not that important.

This fixes it, but I haven't really tested it much.

There are also search issues with <button> and I suspect there are more elements where you wouldn't want to search in.

Not issues that the patch is introducing.
