    I am extraordinarily curious if the luxurious "Find in Page" feature in Mobile Safari is applicable for a second-generation iPod touch. I am currently running on iOS 4.2.1 on a second-generation 16GB iPod Touch, however I cannot find where you go to search for text on a page. I have tried typing "Apple" in the search bar while having the current page as the Apple website, but unfortunately it only brought me to a Google search of the term "Apple." I have also tried typing "apple" into the URL bar, though that only brought me to a Comcast page stating that the website could not be found. Going into Settings, Safari, and then Search Engine was no luck either; it only brought me to the options of Google, Yahoo, or Bing.

    All help on this subject is enormously appreciated. Thank you!

    I'm not sure if it'll be in iOS 4.2 for the 2nd gen. You can find the feature in safari if you go to a website and then click in the search bar and type in the search, scroll to the bottom you can then go into the option.

    Curious. It was working on my 2nd gen with the 4.2 GM, but not 4.2.1.

    Confirmed disabled on 2nd gen, confirmed enabled on 4th gen.

    I have a 2G MB touch and I can vouch for the fact that there's no search feature hidden in the Google search bar.
