Default Search Gone Wrong?

I was recently searching for a phrase that had next amongst other words. But after I did a search, maybe a week later, the word next still comes up highlighted on threads, new and old.



I tried to clear cache, and didn't do a thing. Running Firefox 12.0.

Not like a huge problem, but just a trifle annoying.

Edit: It does it on this very thread, as well.

What browser? Is it the browser search that could be acting up? Add-ons?

Corossive, Firefox 12. The only add-ons I have are adblock and stumbleupon.

I dont know what is causing the bug for you guys. I just opened Firefox and searched for a few key words. Opened a few threads and say the highlighting. Clicked the Forum Index link and went back into the same threads. No highlighting was present.

I dont see the effect in Chrome either.

Make sure when you're clearing the cache that all sessions are deleted as well.
