I'm viewing a page with a large table of pretty ordinary text, with source like this: ...

<TR>
<TD><input type='radio' onClick='onRadioButtonSelect()' name='currentSelection' value="566528503*7BJ*V2*PK2710**false*true*false*03/19/2019 19:24*03/20/2019 02:59*720*SF2_PROD1*467908**566528503_7BJ_V2_PK2710*OK"></TD>

I needed to count how many times "03/11" occurred. I hit Edit->Find and entered 03/11, then hit ENTER or PF3 repeatedly to count them up. When there weren't as many as I expected, I copied the text of the page into a text file to do my count there. Turns out it was skipping about 2/3 of the matches! The first few matches in the text I copied are:

5752SC102       7C0     03/11/2019
5752SC1C4       7CJ     03/11/2019
5752SCLOG       7CJ     03/11/2019
5752SC1CH       7C0     03/11/2019
5695SCPX4       7C0     03/11/2019
5752SYBLD       7CJ     03/11/2019
5752SCDIV       7CJ     03/11/2019
566528503       7CJ     03/11/2019
5752BB1CT       7CJ     03/11/2019
5752SC1C6       7C0     03/11/2019

Firefox's Find skips from SC102 to SC1CH, then SCPX4, then BB1CT, etc. At the bottom, it wraps back around to SC102, so it's really skipping the others, not just finding them out of order.
