How the hell do you do that thing where you bring up a search box, and you can scan the screen for specific words..

That my friend, is fucking skill!!11! :)

Just tried it in Windose and Firefox and it brings up the search box in both progs. In Firefox, it highlights the words entered, thus making browsing long texts a piece of piss! :)

Thanks!

Couple of more useful ones:

Press the ? key on the page inside firefox for quick search, it also highlights the words for you. You can also highlight a word manually, and then press CTRL+F and it will automatically copy it into the search box and autosearch for that word on the page.
