Question about Mozilla Firefox
Lately, when I've tried using "Find" (ctrl+F) to locate words on various websites, the highlighting has been undependable. Sometimes it will highlight the first instance of the word, then not highlight any others, and sometimes it won't highlight any instances of the word at all. I can tell that it is still locating the words, because the page moves around in the usual way. It's just that the actual highlighting itself is missing.
I'm using Firefox 3.0.6 and Windows XP Pro.
It is not broken! you just need to click that bullet down to see other search terms.

Have you tried re-installing FireFox? If not, give that a go. Otherwise, you may be better off contacting Mozilla. Check your screen resolution too. Running a low res these days can sometimes mean webpages wont display properly on Firefox, and it will sometimes highlight the words even if they are out of the windows view range. Try pressing "Ctrl-" a few times to zoom out and get a better view, then try again to see if you can spot the green highlights.
Hope that helps.
