Firefox 2.0 moved closer to its official launch with the recent availability of Release Candidate 2 of the popular open-source Web browser. And while Firefox RC2 differs little from RC1 and the previous betas that eWEEK Labs has reviewed, a couple of small—and, in our opinion, negative—changes jumped out during initial tests of this release.
Firefox has, for a while now, included a useful feature that brings up a Find In This Page tab at the bottom of the browser window whenever a user starts typing a search term. We've always liked using this feature to quickly find a word within a Web page, but, with Version 2.0 RC2, the functionality of this feature has changed: When we began typing a search term in RC2, a Quick Find tab opened at the bottom of the browser window that offered only a small field for the search term, removing the "next," "previous," "highlight all" and "match case" options that we have become accustomed to in the Find In This Page tab.
