where is the F3 command that allows you to search for specific words

on a page? in windows xp, you could hit F3 & it would bring up a box where you type in the word your searching for on a particular page & it would highlight it. when i hit f3 on windows 7 nothing happens. where is this command?

works for me in Win 7 with Firefox and IE.
Are your F keys working? some keyboards have dual purpose F keys and for some funky reason they don't default to the standard F keys.

Should be able to hit F3 and your good to go. Mine works perfectly.

Failing that, there is always the good old CTRL-F. Although F3 does work for me as well on Firefox.

In my Firefox (Pale Moon actually) it works exactly in the same way as hitting Ctrl-F.
