I've tried to find a work around for this, but most of my searches end up in people who can't use the find-on-this-page feature at all in IE8. It appears for me, but for some reason takes forever to find things on a text heavy page, often making IE completely un-usable for several minutes.
I thought I was the only one, but other people in my office have noticed it as well.
Is anyone aware of a work around?
EDIT: Well don't I feel dumb. I finally figured out a fix for this. For our company website (and I'm sure many others that are heavy with heavy filters) you have to have to always run with compatibility view on for find to not lag.
