User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Users should be able to determine the start position for "Find" operations. Specifically, in the case of the Java documentation site, we should be able to click somewhere in the main frame (right hand side) and FireFox should begin searching in that frame.

Right now, whenever I initiate a search the top left and bottom left frames are search first and I end up with hundreds of false positive matches.

Reproducible: Always
This seems identical to Bug 335717 but for some reason I can reproduce it with the latest trunk nightly build on Windows Vista.

Yes, I also had this same problem in Windows Vista for years now.
