One of the thing I dislike most about Firefox is the inability to use
the find function within textareas. This is very annoying when it comes
to editing php/js codes or templates which have very lengthy and
The Find (Ctrl+F) is especially useful to skim through a large number
of words to get to the specific terms easily. I use it all the time
either surfing, reading, or coding.
So, a little search on google I found this:http://www.geektronica.com/2005-11-10-firefox-find-doesnt-work-in-textareashttp://www.liewcf.com/blog/archives/2004/10/firefox-pr10-cannot-search-in-textarea/https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=252371
(official bug report)
So (again) why isn't it implemented? Are they disabled on purposed for
some sort of security reasons? Or is it just like what the other guy
said that they just haven't fixed it?
It's really annoying
when I can't get things done due to limitations. And it have a very
serious performance hit. The only way I can get this done is to "View
Source" and find through the source code. It doesn't work all the time
especially when it comes to situations with escape HTML tags such as
<(<) >(>) "(")
Does anybody know if there's a fix / greasemonkey-hack / firefox-extension
that I can download?
