"Searching for a word on a page appears to be broken. Initially it gives me over 3000

minute and reduces the result to three, but fails to highlight them. The latest example
was for “reverb”, which definitely wouldn’t appear nearly 4000 times on a page.

Article was Radiohead’s Ok Computer."

I was able to reproduce this on 6.3.1 1648 on iPhone XS, iOS 12.3.1
