I think I might be misunderstanding this question.  But I read it as "search current page", and the answer is:

Confluence's search is built for finding pages, not content within a page.  So even if you did this, the result would not be anything more than a link back to the page you were on.

To search the current page for something, try CTRL-F - most browsers will pop a text search for you.

This is exactly what we advise users to do (8000 employees on Confluence) when we have a page where 'find on page' is relevant. We might use the Note (or similar) Macro to help 'pop' that advice to ensure casual visitors to the page see it.
