Find As you Type (FAYT) doesn't go to Next or Previous Instance (regression?)

The Find Next and Find Previous buttons and the F3 key don't work. The only way to currently get any use out of FAYT is to select "Highlight All" and then to scroll through the document and look for the yellow highlights.

This happens with "Begin finding when you begin typing" ON or OFF (under: Tools / Options / Advanced / General / Accessibility).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press the "/" key while on any web page
2. Type some text that occurs more than one on that web page (e.g., "the")
3. Press F3 or the "Find Next" or "Find Previous" buttons.

Actual Results:  
FAYT stays on the first instance of the word, but doesn't go to any of the other instances.

OK, I re-tested this on a (fairly) clean profile and this bug didn't appear.

Sorry for the bugspam. :-[

PS. Does anyone know what file or extension I could edit/delete that could fix this?

FWIW: I narrowed it down to the "IE TAB" Extension.
