Find All is a Firefox extension that replaces the find bar's Highlight All button with a powerful Find All button, which highlights all search terms found and displays them in an easy to view list. The list displays a few words before and after the search term so you can quickly see the context of each match. It also shows a total of how many times the search term was found on the page.
Once it is installed, start Firefox and click on Edit menu > Find...
In the Find bar at the bottom of the screen, type in a word or phrase to search for and then click on the Find All button. A list will appear underneath the Find bar with the results of your search, and all matches will be found on the web page. Also, the total number of matches appears in the Find bar status area. You can scroll through the list to easily see the context of each found result and jump to the part of the web page you want by clicking on a list item. The list may be made larger or smaller by dragging the separator bar above the Find bar.
By default, the Find All button replaces the Highlight All button on the Find bar. If you would like to have the Highlight All button back on the Find bar, you may set this preference in the Find All add-on options dialog (Tools menu > Add-ons, click Options button on Find All).
Other options include:
-Don't show the list of found results when the Find All button is clicked (only the total number of matches will show in the Find bar status area).
-Change the font size of the results list
-Alternate background color of rows in results list
-Select matches on the page instead of highlighting them
-Show close button on right side of find bar instead of the left side
Find All also works in the browser's View Source window.
Note: Find All may not be compatible with other extensions that modify the find bar. This is due to the way the find bar is structured in Firefox 3.
