Yes the function itself works, however its possibilities were reduced. Only one instance could be found. There is no way to cycle through all the occurrences of the searched expression, no way to highlight all of them. Surely you can press CTRL+F and gain all the functionality, but it slows down my web browsing. It bugs me that useful features are being stripped down from the previous versions and new ones are added from which some could be installed through extensions and don't need to be in the plain browser, that's all. Maybe I've found a bug or there is some hidden option in about:config to recreate the old behaviour, so please tell me if you know. I'm running the windows build btw.
