The “find in page” function - the app equivalent to CTRL+F - isn’t working for me. When I search a word, it will narrow down and tell me 1/5 or whatever the number is, but when I click the arrow to take me to the word, the page doesn’t respond at all. I’ve tried with several words on a page, short and long, and updated Firefox and then tried again and it’s still not working. I’m not sure what the issue is or if I’m just doing something wrong.

Does this happen on all pages or specific pages? I would say if it's specific pages, it might be an issue with that page, but if it's happening all the time, then something could be messed up with your FF. I'd delete it and reinstall it, and see if that clears up the issue (although it sounds like you already tried this, yeah?) Definitely strange.

You know I didn’t even think to check and it is just that website that’s having the search issue, although it’s only doing that with Firefox, it works fine in chrome and safari. Thank you!

Something on the page might not be playing nice with FF. If you can replicate it every single time, I'd possibly submit a bug to bugzilla.mozilla.org and see if we can resolve it potentially.
