How can I change the find function so that it "IS" shared between tabs?

In the notes about what changed in Firefox 25 is this: "The find bar is no longer shared between tabs." I use the find function all day every day and absolutely need the find bar "to be shared" between tabs. How can I change the function back to how it worked before? This new change in version 25 will cost me hours of search time everyday.

Hi,

This function is no longer officially in Firefox, however this addon replaces it: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/find-in-tabs

Hope this helps!

Cyborg's suggestion is listed as not available in FF25 and Cor-El's suggestion only restores the "shared between tabs" functionality if you don't use a new search term in one of the tabs. In my opinion, "shared" and "not shared" should have become an option, not a requirement

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. (You'll need to be on the latest version of Firefox to submit feedback). Your feedback gets collected at http://input.mozilla.org/, where a team of people read it and gather data about the most common issues.
