Ok, what happens is if I click "Highlight" on, as I type in the search
box it will highlight all the strings in the window that match what I
have typed. If I keep typing to match a word that is only lower in the
page below my window. It will not automatically scroll down to display
the word. I have to scroll down to see it. Shouldn't Firefox
automatically scroll down to display the word? And of course with
"Highlight" clicked off nothing happens.
