Highlighting for the second search entered in toolbar _added_ to the first one when i switched tabs in firefox. This is not the same behavior when I enter another search in the only one tab.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open 2 tabs in firefox
2. search for some word in one of them
3. Press highlight all button
4. Switch to another tab (search toolbar remains open with the same search query)
5. Enter another search request, press "highlight all"
6. Switch to the first tab, press "highlight all"

Actual Results:  
Highlighting for the second search results added to the first one.

Expected Results:  
Change highlighting to match only second results.
This is actually what happens if I enter another search query in the same tab ( without switching)

Do you also see it on Firefox 6 (official build from mozilla.org) in Firefox Safe mode?
I cannot reproduce this.
