More Information

go to a page with a lot of text, and do cntrl-f for a word or part of a word that isn't displayed and you'll probably see the problem. happy to respond more to you if you can't duplicate. Eager to hear what you find.
Example, on url: http://www.midwestmafia.com/
do cntrl-F, and slowly type in Capone. His name is at the bottom of this page.

Hi Cb,

I did try that and it didn't work. the site in question (though I could pick any) is midwestmafia.com and I typed in capone (which is near the end of the page)

Works well on IE, though I'd like to stick with FF.
