Open this wikipedia edit page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=English_language&action=edit
with Firefox. Now search for the word "Frisian" - Firefox's find toolbar doesn't find it because it doesn't search the edit text window.

Open the same webpage with Seamonkey or the Mozilla suite and do the same. Now the word is found.

This bug is in my opinion a regression to seamonkey and makes life for wiki writers unnecessaryly hard.

Reproducible: Always
Keywords: regression
Summary: Firefox isn't able to search within wiki texts - Seamonkey can do this → Firefox isn't able to search within wiki texts
