User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20091106 SeaMonkey/2.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20091106 SeaMonkey/2.0 "Find as you type" is not case sensitive, at least be default on my system. "Find in this page" (Ctrl+F) has an option for case-sensitive searches that usually works fine. However if FAYT has been used to search for a string, and then you realize you need some case sensitivity in your search: you press Ctrl+F and activate "match case", then search for your string again (change the case of some chars if you want but apart from the case keep the same string) expecting a case-sensitive search, but it doesn't work: "find in this page" is not case-sensitive. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open the URL (seamonkey home page) in a browser. 2. "find text as you type" (hit '/') and type "sea" (without quotes). FAYT is case insensitive so you get matches on SeaMonkey. 3. Hit Ctrl+F, activate "match case", search for "sea" again. Actual Results: You still get matches for SeaMonkey although S is in upper-case. Expected Results: Once "match case" is activated, find should only match on text where "sea" is all lower-case. Today the only match is a Sept 3 2009 entry linking to the seamonkey home page, i.e. www.seamonkey-project.org . Note that it seems only the latest FAYT string is affected. For example in the case above after step 3: 4. close the Find dialog box; 5. FAYT for string "project"; 6. type Ctrl+F, activate "match case", and search for "sea". Result: the search is now case sensitive! I also noticed that if the search string (in Ctrl+F) is not identical to the FAYT string except for some characters' case, the bug does not occur. For example, if after step 3 you add an 'm' to the search string, it works (no longer matches on SeaMonkey).
Confirming with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52pre) Gecko/20091211 SeaMonkey/2.0.2pre, FAYT and Find in this page don't like each other very much if used together...

Found this very old bug that I submitted in 2009, it's fixed in seamonkey-2.32.1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 so I'll mark it fixed.
