Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.2
Build ID: 20120215223356

Steps to reproduce:

Press C-f to display the Find toolbar at the bottom of the window and make sure 'match case' is ticked (perhaps still ticked from a previous search).  Enter some text characters which appear in the page, but with the wrong case.  For example if the page contains 'ABC' type 'abc'.


Actual results:

No match is found and the text box highlights red.  (It is not obvious that the 'match case' option is the reason, especially if you ticked it by accident or it was left ticked from an earlier search.)


Expected results:

The 'match case' box should also be highlighted to draw the user's attention to the fact it is ticked.  I suggest that when a search string matches case-insensitively but not case-sensitively, and 'match case' is ticked, then it should be highlighted red instead of the text box being highlighted red.
