The "Ctrl-G" option is the only way to access the Find Bar in the last two releases. Observation: Underscored "F" in "Find in this message" seems to conflict with "Ctrl+F' shortcut for message filter. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1."Edit / Find / Find in this message" 2. 3. Actual Results: Message filter bar opens above message pane Expected Results: Open Find Bar below message pane see "Observation" in Details window re Ctrl+F.
This is a variant of bug 564328 on using the same command for both the new Quick Filter search bar and the Find in Message function. Not only the Ctrl+F shortcut is shared, but apparently also the underlying menu command. As a workaround, select Edit > Find > Find in this message again while the focus is on the Quick Filter bar, then the Find bar for the message appears.
