    Does anyone know if Bug 252371 (incremental find in page does not find/highlight text in textarea/form/text entry boxes) gets fixed until 1.0? In my opinion because of the importance of this feature for wiki-users or bloggers this bug should get blocking-status…

    Thanx Dave for the Link!

    @Simplex: I´d love to write a patch if I knew how – unfortunately I am not a programmer but only a (heavy)user who´s looking forward to the 1.0 release everyday :-)
