Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

When searching a site that uses frames ff doesn't always use the frame that has the focus. For example, it is difficult for me to search the main frame when browsing javadocs. I often must open the frame I want to search as a stand-alone tab. 
 Ubuntu 8.04- the Hardy Heron - released in April 2008.

  Installed: 3.0.10+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1
  Candidate: 3.0.10+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1
  Version table:
 *** 3.0.10+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1 0

I would expect FF page search to follow the selected frame.
