Steps to reproduce:

  1. Make sure you didn't type anything in the NVDA+f edit field.
  2. Go to a document that you need text found for
  3. Go to the end of the document
  4. Press NVDA+shift+f3
  5. Type the word
  6. NVDA will say text not found. But when you press NVDA+shift+f3 again NVDA will be able to find the word you're looking for.

Actual behavior:

When steps 4 and 5 are complete NVDA doesn't try to find previous result, it tries to go to the next result which fails because the currsor is at the end of the document.

Expected behavior:

When steps 4 and 5 are applied NVDA should be able to find last occurrance
