Find and Replace does not do anything/not working

I hit Command + F while editing an existing page in Confluence.  The 'Find and Replace' toolbar will drop down.  I copy the exact bit of text that is on the page about 50 times.  I hit 'Next'.  Page will jump down but nothing is highlighted.  I hit next again and nothing happens at all.  Any successive clicks of next, previous, Replace, will do nothing.  I dont want to have to restart confluence to get this basic functionality working again.

Hey have you ever fixed it by restarting Confluence? Is there anything in the logs? Have you tried different browsers?
