Firefox 25 Enhances the Find Function

Firefox 25, which is currently being rolled out to the public, enhances the browser’s find function. And more to the point, the find bar is no longer shared between tabs in this latest release.

You can get Firefox 25 for Windows right here on FindMySoft.
To get Firefox for other platforms, visit the browser’s official website.


Mozilla Firefox has a very handy find function. Say you’re on FindMySoft’s website and you want to quickly locate the word George. Press Ctrl + F, type in George in the find bar, and the browser will quickly find that word.

Until version 25, the find bar was shared between tabs. The same search term would be displayed in the find bar when you switched from one tab to another. So if you searched for George in a tab, the same search term would be displayed in the find bar when you moved to another tab.

This behavior has been changed with Firefox 25. The find bar is no longer shared between tabs. This means that Firefox will now remember that you searched for George in one tab and for something else in another tab.

The find bar has also received a visual refresh. The Highlight All and the Match Case functions are no longer presented right next to the find bar. They are now presented to the far right – the bottom right hand corner on the browser’s interface.

Firefox 25 also includes the following changes:
  • You will be invited to migrate another browser’s history and settings if you’ve been away from Firefox for months.
  • Your browsing session will not be cleared when you reset Firefox.

Firefox for Android has been updated as well. Version 25 comes with these 3 new features:
  • Guest Browsing for when you want to let a friend browse on your phone.
  • Enabled mixed content blocking to protect from man-in-the-middle attacks and eavesdroppers on HTTPS pages.
  • Add-ons can add indicators to the URL bar.

You can get Firefox for Android from Google’s Play Store.
