Previously, the find bar (triggered using Ctrl+F which appears at the bottom) used to stay active across all open tabs with the search term retained. This is no longer the case with Firefox 25.
The missing functionality that I seek is:
If I press Ctrl+F keep the find bar open across all tabs until I voluntarily close it, in which case it should close across all other tabs automatically.
To show the same search term across all other open tabs.
Unfortunately, this behavior - which worked very well for many - has been introduced as a bug. Please note that I do not want an add-on as a solution, nor do I want to downgrade Firefox to a previous version.
I have also checked
about:config for potential settings but to no avail.
