when searching a frame, Search menu item should be Find in Active Frame
...right now it still says, Find in the Page. the backend, ie, searching within a frame *does* work, it's just that there's no visual indication within the Search menu (or which frame is active, but that's another bug :) that you're actually searching within a frame. (page in the frame context implies the main frameset, imo, rather than the active frame.)
this feature is part of communicator 4.x, too.
on the "give the user a indication in the UI" note, this would prolly go hand in hand with bug 41443 (which alas, has been minused).
This would be easy, but again the problem is the damn minused "show focus in frame" bug (so the user still doesn't really know what frame he's searching in). Still, I guess the word change would be better than nothing.

Summary: when searching a frame, Search menu item should be Find in the Frame → when searching a frame, Search menu item should be Find in this Frame
I am going to checkin tonight to add the string "Find in this Frame" (I assume that's what you meant, since its counterpart is "Find in _this_ Page"?) just to workaround the i18n UI text freeze requirement, and we can implement this after beta3.
brendan, could you please review & approve this simple patch just to get the strings in before text freeze? i'm afraid that law may not still be around tonight...

Thanks. However, when I went to sleep at 2am EST last night, the tree was still closed...so I clearly couldn't check this in. Is it too late now?
"Find in this frame?" What does "this" refer to? IMO, should be "Find in active frame".
jesse, good point! esp since showing active frame isn't implemented --might as well attempt to clarify in the menu... resummarizing.

I agree. Marking WONTFIX, but we need a new bug to search through frames in order (we currently just search the active frame).
