#37 Removing the options on find as you type is stupid

Must be a bug or can anyone actually come up with a reasonable argument why it is an improvement to remove the buttons that are present on the bar when one uses the "Find in this page" option (either via the menu or via the keyboard shortcut).

The argument constantly brought forward why the option for acception cookies from the original host only was removed is not that good either: first, at least a lot of cookies are still filtered that way, so deleting the rest would be much easier. Second, one could warn for now and try to prevent the workaround -- the best way to do this IMO would be to simply also have an option to only allow Javascript from the original host only. That would solve the cookie workaround problem AND would prevent a lot of totally useless and intrusive Javascript from being run (Third party Javascript code usualy is just there for ads, stats and other and maybe even worse unwanted crap).
