- Rated 4 out of 5by PeaceByJesus.net, a year agoA welcome addition to the deficient default find in page function, however, while I choose to highlight all occurrences of a search word (I read the wrench icon page) which can help, yet the search box disappears from view once you click in the page or a word to copy one instance of it.
Nor does it stay in view across tabs, which is an option that many users have requested of Firefox.
Otherwise, if you want to search again for the same word in the page (after clicking on the page ow word) rather than looking for highlights, or you want to search for the same word on another tab then you need to click the icon again.
Using F3 invokes the FF default find in page, which inconsistently sometimes remains in view, if not always keeping the same last search term. A bug has been filed.
All these years and many of us are still waiting for a true replacement of the old FindBar Tweak, though it did not allow Regex.
Note that I have hundreds of tabs open and do much research, and use a desktop, thus not being an average user.
Thank God for such developers as you who help us, Thanks.

It would be nice after pressing Ctrl-Shift-F to have focus go to the search box. Like that Ctrl-Shift-F is a toggle which returns focus to where you were.
Love being able to use regular expressions in on page searches. Needs a few more usability things as mentioned in this and other review to get 5 stars (at least from me). Good job. Thanks!

That tricked me to believe it didn't work at all.
I'm also missing a hotkey.
