CTRL+F Only Works if you type in EXACTLY what the word is

Hi there, when I try to use the CTRL+F (find or search a webpage), it only works if I type in EXACTLY how the word is on the website.

For example, if I try to search for a word on a webpage and type it in the Find box as "cherries" but on the webpage, they have it typed in as "Cherries" (with a capital C), the Find function will say that this word isn't found. When I change my Find word to "Cherries" (with a Capital C), the word will be found on the webpage. Does this make sense?

Make sure that Match case on the Find bar (Ctrl+F) doesn't have a check mark.
