This has been annoying me for a while. When I search (ctrl+F or just start typing for quick find) for something, and Firefox finds something it puts the search result completely at the top of the page.

Now, not only is this annoying, some pages use a floating header that gets over the found occurence and hides it. This forces me to scroll to see every occurence.

Does a plugin exist that puts the search result in the middle of the screen instead of completely at the top?

Good question, I've wondered about this for a while (especially when Firefox is "finding" something and it's actually out of the current viewing frame!). –  Breakthrough Jul 8 '11 at 13:28

This doesn't happen on 5.0 it displays it at the bottom of the page

EDIT -

This extension displays the searched word in the middle of the page -

That's better, for sure, but would it be possible to get it in the middle instead? I need context to see if this occurrence was what I were looking for. –  orlp Jul 8 '11 at 11:45
