#32931: Prevent Find (Ctrl+F) resizing letterbox on other tabs
 Reporter:  cypherpunks  |          Owner:  tbb-team

 Steps to reproduce:
 1. At the default window size, open two tabs.
 2. In one tab, open a domain/website.
 3. In the other tab, physically type a different, unrelated
 domain/website, and open it. Physically type it so that the two tabs are
 as identifiably separate as they can be in one session. No referers or
 variables passed in click-through URLs.
 4. Notice that each page's area fills the default window size to its edges
 as they are supposed to.
 5. In the first tab, open the browser's Find box (Ctrl+F) as if you were
 searching for text on that page. Notice the vertical size of its
 letterboxed page area shrink as it's supposed to.
 6. Click on the second tab to view the different, unrelated domain. Notice
 its tab does NOT have a Find box at the bottom, but its letterboxed page
 area shrunk nonetheless.
 7. On the first tab, close the Find box. Notice the page area grow to its
 original size.
 8. Click on the second tab that never had a Find box. Notice its page area
 has also grown to its original size.

 Thus, opening Find on one tab passes the indication of its opened state to
 all tabs.

 Expected result:
 Opening Find in one tab would not affect the letterboxes of other tabs.
