      In firefox 1.0, either hitting ctrl-F or selecting "find" from the "edit" menu, the find bar comes up, but the find function fails to work. Selecting "highlight" works, but for some reason "find next" and "find previous" do not show anything. I used only the default optimization flags. I also noticed this same bug reported on NetBSD's website. Thanks!

      Just try finding text on a webpage with FireFox 1.0.
