User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131025151332

Steps to reproduce:

> Open the Find bar (CTRL +F).
> Type in any search term.
> Hit the on-screen down arrow button repeatedly to find all occurrences of the searched-for text.
> Continue doing this and observe vertical scrollbar to see when the found item is nearer the top of the page again than when you started.

Actual results:

The 'Reached End of Page, Continued from the Top' notification does not occur, or no longer appears.

Expected results:

The 'Reached End of Page, Continued from the Top' notification should have appeared the moment the next highlighted found item occurred at a point higher in the page than the last found item nearest the bottom of the page. (This used to work in all(?) versions of Firefox prior to version 25.0. Please restore this functionality!

WFM with FF25 on Win 7 (see http://i.imgur.com/r8Mj9wj.jpg).

Could you test:
1) in safe mode: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode
2) with a clean profile: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles

Does it fix it?
Component: Untriaged → Find Toolbar

I tested alternative #1 starting in Safe mode and the notification worked!
Then I restarted in Normal mode and now the notification works again! Magic!
I did not test alternative #2.

Thanks very much for your help! :)

Add-on issue probably. If it's back, you need to disable the faulty add-on.
