I usually have to type Ctrl+F, type the search string, and then Alt+A to toggle "Highlight all", because only one match is highlighted by default. I want the "Highlight all" button to be always on, and I don't think I'll ever need to turn it off.
"Highlight all" has to be re-enabled by the user for every page.
"Match case" stays toggled when you switch between pages.
Which is the wrong way around from a usability perspective.
Searching for some time did not yield any good results. This thread http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2077733 addresses the problem, but the solution there (Find Toolbar Tweaks plugin) doesn't work with newer versions of Firefox. The plug-in's page doesn't list any recent updates.
Is there a plug-in or a setting to get this standard behaviour in Firefox? (Chrome, Opera, and even IE all behave sensibly in this regard.)
