That reminds me : I find it inconvenient that, when I'm clicking the
find Down arrow and looking at the found text, I see no indication of
when it goes back to the top. I don't see the vertical thumb move up,
or the text at the bottom, because I am not looking there.
How about readily-selectable options :
(1) As it now is,
(2) An extra click is needed before it goes to the other end,
(3) A suitable sound,
(4) It takes one (by default) second to smooth-scroll between locations,
accelerating over the first half and decelerating over the second
half. which will give some idea of the distance travelled.
