All browsers have Find bar and can be enabled with a shortcut key Ctrl + F (Windows). In Firefox browser, you won’t even need to use the Find bar to search text in a web page.

Like other browsers, in Firefox, you can use Ctrl + F keys to bring the Find bar. It’ll appear at the bottom of the window. You can also use apostrophe (‘) key or slash (/) key for the Quick Find bar, which also searches for things on the page.

To search things without Find bar, go to the Firefox menu, click Options, them Advanced and then the General tab. Check the box next to “search for text when I start typing” and click Ok to save the settings.

Now you will not need to press any shortcut keys to search the text in a web page. Just start typing on your keyboard and Firefox will begin searching immediately.

The result will be highlighted in green color. Pressing F3 jumps to the next matching item.
