In Thunderbird branch and trunk builds (latest,) if I have the find toolbar displayed with a search term and the highlight switch toggled on, when I load up a new message, the message pane scrolls to put the last matched term in view. It shouldn't do this. Rather, it should highlight all matching terms on the page and scroll to put the first term in view. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. send yourself a message with the term "thunderbird" written on line one and repeated on line 100. 
2. in the message view pane / preview pane, activate the find toolbar, type in the term "thunderbird" and toggle the highlight switch to the on position. 
3. click on the message header in the thread pane.

Results: both terms are highlighted but the message view pane / preview pane is scrolled to put the second instance of the highlighted term into view. 

Expected results: both terms highlighted with the message view pane / preview pane scrolled (if necessary) to put the first instance of the highlighted term into view.
