Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

Note:  Support for window.find() might change in future versions of Gecko . See bug 672395.

            aWholeWord, aSearchInFrames, aShowDialog);
