So I would like to elaborate on my original query. When one searches for text on a web-page (ctl-f), all visible occurrences of that text (any case, any wildcard) will be highlited nicely. In the search bar at the bottom, you can click up-chevron, or down-chevron to have the page move-to and present each occurrence of that text nicely.
However, if you click a chevron, and that next occurrence of text is NOT presented (the web-page does not advance to wherever that text exists), then you know that occurrence of text is hidden, perhaps "in a frame" somewhere. Firefox does not highlite which frame. You would essentially need to click on everything that needs a click-to-open/expand, in the entire page, in oder for the Firefox search to then reveal that text.
That *severely* reduces the usefulness of Firefox's search a page for text.
We are astonished that this issue has not been raised by anyone else (afaik).
How does one ask Firefox coders to take a look into this?

Often when Searching the contents of the current web page for text, some words are hidden or backgrounded, and not visible, as we cycle through the search counter.
How can we reveal those words on the page, that are hidden like ghosts?

Are you sure that these results aren't hidden because of search settings like "Match Case" or "whole Words" ?
If you use Quick Find then these settings are hidden and you need to open the Find bar via Ctrl+F.
If the results are in an iframe and aren't visible (i.e. you need to scroll this frame) then they might not be found.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
