The Unix tradition is to make a search case-insensitive unless it contains a capital letter, in which case it becomes case-sensitive. Is it possible to get this behavior for Firefox's "Find in this Page"?

Failing that, is there a keyboard shortcut to toggle case sensitivity?

Try setting the following pref to 1 or 2, then restart.

Pref accessibility.typeaheadfind.casesensitive

Awesome, thank you. I'm going to miss this forum when it's gone.

P.S.

I assume Kodi is his first name.

That's right. My name is Kodi Arfer. I'm a behavioral scientist, and a lot of my research interests have a certain navel-gazing quality. Hence, I am a Kodiologist.
