A minor suggestion, from a curmudgeonly keyboard shortcuts power-user: I use "find in page" searches a lot, and am greatly slowed by having to move from typing my search term to using the mouse to cycle through matches (by clicking the up and down arrows in the "find in page" GUI bar). It would be great if, when a search results in multiple matches, I could just press Ctrl+f repeatedly to cycle through the matches.

Thanks for all the thankless work on your great products and keeping the web open!

Firefox tends to follow platform conventions. For example, on Windows, Ctrl+G and F3 can be used to "Find Next" using the keyboard.

Also, if you haven't clicked in the page (cursor is still in the find box), you can use the keyboard to press the buttons: tab from the find text to the up button and then the down button, after which tapping the space bar will activate the down button.
