The birth of Firefox 3 brought with it a great new feature for students, researchers and anyone else looking for specific text on a crowded web page. The new feature is called Text Search. By default the Text Search feature is disabled. You must go into the options and enable it. After it is enabled you can visit any web page on any website and search for any specific text.


When a text match is found Firefox highlights it and automatically scrolls down the web page to the location of the piece of text you were searching for. If there are multiple instances of the text on the specific web page you are searching on then the Text Search feature will only bring up the first instance. But it will show how many instances of the text string it found. If you want to go to the other instances you just have to click the UP or Down arrows.

PLEASE NOTE: This tutorial was created using Firefox 3.5 but as I first mentioned this feature exists in the older Firefox 3 and of course it exists on the newest versions of Firefox.

In the following Firefox Text Search video tutorial I will take you step-by-step and you will easily learn the following…
1. How-To enable Firefox’s Text Search feature
