    I think I've found another bug, but I need to make sure it's not something unique to my configuration before I report it. Hopefully, some of you can test this to see if you can reproduce my results.

    First, open each of these links in separate tabs:

    Then, go to the first tab, press Command-F to search the page, and type: LaCie
    If it works like mine, you'll find 2 matches, but the left and right arrows to go to the matches will be grayed out:

    Click "Done" or press the ESC key to close the Find function, then press Command-F to re-open it.
    It should show LaCie and the 2 matches, but now the arrows aren't grayed out and are functional:

    Go to the other two tabs and press Command-F and the arrows will be grayed out, until you close and reopen the Find function.

    I've tried it on mine with 2 of those links and a different website, and it doesn't seem to be doing that... sorry no help here.

    I can reproduce the behavior, albeit with one slight difference.
    It worked like it's supposed to for the first tab, but from the second tab on it did what you describe and also when going back to the first tab...

    Apparently, if there's nothing in the Find window when you first open it, it works fine. If there's a previous search term there, it comes up with the arrows grayed out.

    Edit: After more testing, I can only reproduce the problem on MR Forums. It works as it should on Apple, CNN, GizMag, etc. That's weird!

    It did it that time...That's the only way i can reproduce it! good find.

    i wish we could test it on Safari 3, i've never paid attention to this before.
