-frames
-page/sections/column breaks
-and all the others writer special elements that at the moment are not selectable with the standard find and replace.
Thank you

Thank you for reporting this enhancement request! I can confirm that this is a valid enhancement request on:
Version 4.1.0.0.alpha0+ (Build ID: b514f0ce86e85d9be269ddf2e797befbbf3423f)
Date:   Thu Mar 7 21:46:30 2013 +0200 
Platform: Bodhi Linux 2.2 x64

As I've been able to confirm the enhancement request I am marking as:

New (confirmed)
Enhancement
Medium (think that this could be quite useful for many people who use these types of additional features in Writer. Implementation could be quite difficult depending on what is being searched for, not even sure how you could search/replace an image but I'll leave that for developers). 

Also, please note that searching for Notes (I assume this is "comments" is possible). Ctrl + h -> more options -> Comments (check)

I just found this extension:
http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/alternative-dialog-find-replace-for-writer
that does a lot of what I want.
I think this should just become integral part of LibreOffice.

Same problem, but the extension doesn't work for me.

Replacing in footnotes and endnotes works so adjusting summary.
