Search for Text in Links

Firefox has a lot of helpful features we don’t always use or know about.  One of these that gets overlooked a lot is the Quick Find feature.  If you want to simply find a phrase that appears in a link on the page you are viewing, follow these simple steps:

  1. Type ‘ to bring up the Quick Find bar on the bottom of the browser
  2. Type in the phrase or word you want to find within a link into the empty text field
  3. Hit Ctrl + G to highlight the next link that has that word or phrase in it

To get rid of the Quick Find bar across the bottom of your Firefox window, hit Esc or just wait a few seconds and it should disappear automatically.
