When I try to search through the SQL code in a Query tab, nothing happens.
If I try CTRL+F, I get no window to enter search terms, it doesn't change focus to the search box in the top right corner.
If I type my search term in the search box in the top right corner and press "Enter" or click on the magnifying glass, nothing happens.
If I select "Find ..." using the menus (Edit -> Find -> Find ...), nothing happens.

I have only tested this on Ubuntu Linux 10.10 x64

How to repeat:
As per description

Suggested fix:
Display 'Find' dialog to allow searches when using menus, or CTRL+F
Perform search when entering text in the search box in the top right corner and press "Enter" or click magnifying glass.

Performing a "Find and Replace" does work successfully.
Either by selecting the menu (Edit -> Find -> Find and Replace), or by using the keyboard shortcut SHIFT+CTRL+F

Thank you for the bug report. Verified also on 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04.

This bug is still present in 5.2.34:

- Both "Find" and "Find and Replace" items are greyed out in Edit -> Find menu.
- Ctrl + Shift + F opens the Find and Replace dialog.
- Ctrl + F doesn't do anything.
