Case insensitive search in Firefox

Doing a search in Firefox (Ctrl-f) is case sensitive.
Is there a way to make it case INsensitive?
I looked in about:config, didn't see anything releated to 'search'

There's a check box with "Match case" to the right of the search box.  Uncheck it.

When I search in Firefox, it has a box to the right that says "Match case". Uncheck the box.

Hello allelopath,

    * Access the about:config page.
    * Find the accessibility.typeaheadfind.casesensitive preference name
    * Double-click on it to change the integer value to 0
    * Click on OK
    * Close the about:config page/tab
    * The changes take effect instantly

Hope this helps!

That's the LONG way of unchecking the checkbox that miss_sellaneus already stated :)

BrandonGalde,

allelopath may not want to check the box each time he or she does search. This change in about.configure permanently fixes the problem.

Unless you check the check box again.

I apologize for my poorly worded question.
war1 read my mind in that I was looking for a way to have the default be not case sensitive.

Really.  You accepted the more difficult way of doing the same thing that myself and Miss_Sellaneus posted?
