Is there a way to change 'Find in page' to put the focus back at the bottom of the page? (FF 12.0)

With the update to Firefox 12, using the 'Find in page' feature now centers results on the page (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171237 for specifics). I checked the about:config page and I don't see anything that would change this back to the prior behaviour. I find myself struggling at time to find the highlighted text now, whereas before I knew exactly where to expect it on the page.

Is there any way to go back to this earlier behaviour without having to revert to an earlier version?

It's not uncommon for add-on authors to find ways to undo changes to Firefox after a new release. Without an add-on, I suspect there's no easy way to get at this.
