Firefox not using internal search rather than PDF.js search

When viewing a PDF document in firefox using PDF.js, I hit Ctrl+F to open a search dialog. Firefox's own search bar appears at the bottom of my screen. However, I want not Firefox's native search bar, but the PDF.js search tool. Firefox's search bar cannot search the entire PDF document. Instead, it searches only the currently viewed page or two.

I think this is a bug, and I would welcome any ideas or workarounds. Please let me know if I should post a bug report somewhere else. A cursory internet search didn't reveal any others reporting the same problem.
