Browser Search doesnt search in Editfields
At the same time with T174723 the search with "Ctrl + F" only finds text outside the editbox.
Win 7 x64 with Opera 47.0.2631.71 (PGO) and Firefox 55.0.3


  1. Go to an page, as an example
  2. open it to edit
  3. "Ctrl + F" and search for "erfüllt"
  4. then the word should be found and highlighted
  5. in this case the search ignores all words in the editbox (the frame where i can edit the site content)

Occurs only when Syntax Highlighting is activated

Hi @Quotengrote, thanks for taking the time to report this.
Unfortunately this report lacks information. If you have time and can still reproduce the problem: Please add a more complete description to this report (a list of steps to reproduce which leave no room for interpretation what to do, describing actual results and expected results after performing the steps to reproduce, attaching or linking to a public testcase, browser information, MediaWiki version information, etc). You can edit the task description by clicking Edit Task.
What are "Editfields"?
Ideally, exact and clear steps to reproduce should allow any other person to follow these steps (without having to interpret those steps) and see the same results. Problems that others can reliably reproduce can get fixed faster. Thanks!
