Can you try to reproduce this problem in safe mode
(  If you can, what errors show
up in the error console (tools -> error console) when you try to find that IP? 
Also, how are you trying to find this: Edit -> Find, Ctrl + F, or

I have not tried this in safe mode yet.  I used Edit -> Find to search within a webpage.  Thx.

Tried to reproduce error using safe mode. If I type the IP address it works, but if I do a copy and paste, it does not. (and yes, I made sure there were not any white spaces)
Still WFM. Can you please try creating a new profile, and if it still happens there, use the new Firefox 3.5 which is coming out tomorrow (hopefully :)
