Steps to reproduce

  1. Open this Microsoft web page:
  2. Press Ctl-F and start a text search in the page.
  3. Start typing:
  4. As you type windows, you can see it highlighting all places with the word "windows", but once you press spacebar and enter a space after the word "windows", you can see “Windows 10” and “Windows 8.1” and “Windows 7” no longer highlight in yellow under the Supported operating systems page.
  5. If you enter a “7” after the space, No Results shows for the search when “Windows 7” is clearly present in the test.
    I’ve attached a snapshot. The left window is Google Chrome with the correct text search, and the right window is Edge.
    I did a fresh install of Windows 10 1903 (OS Build 18362.30) which I downloaded as an ISO from my Visual Studio subscription portal - this is Edge from this version.
