Want to give us an example page so we can test it?  I'm running JAWS 11 beta 

Also, you'll recall the beta report form.

Subject: Virtual Find Problem with JFW 11

Has anyone else had a problem with Virtual Find with the Beta when using 
Internet Explorer?  This seems to happen mostly on large web pages.  I press 
Control+f, and JFW speaks virtual find.  I key in what I want to find and press 
Enter.  Most of the time JFW then goes silent, but occasionally it speaks some 
text from somewhere on the page.  When I press plus on the keypad to check 
which cursor mode I'm in, JFW speaks PC Cursor instead of Virtual Cursor.  
Toggling the cursor mode with JAWS Key+z doesn't help.  I can only get the 
Virtual Cursor back by clicking somewhere on the page in text that is not a 
link.  I haven't yet made this happen when using Firefox.
