Hi Caolán, this issue is the same as bug 138232 but GTK3 only. I thought you might be interested

Repro 7.3+ the fact that the search bar phrase is highlighted too for Find All.

However, I have never been able to reproduce the Enter not highlighting the first match in the document. (Perhaps point 5 only means "notice the search bar's text is not being highlighted" which has always been true.)

Assigned, but 7.2 patch was only "related" and didn't claim to fix the problem.
