Yes, I did try it!

It may have something to do with the items you have in your Preview  
Toolbar. On my system, if I have an item in the list highlighted (I  
use a green highlight color) I can move up/down the list using the up/ 
down arrow keys. This action highlights the search item, in gray, in  
the Preview window. To get my usual highlight color in the Preview  
window I press Tab once and that puts the focus on the pdf Preview  
window and the highlighted item is no in my regular highlight color.  
If I continue pressing the Tab key I start to highlight (i.e., put  
the focus on) different boxes on the Toolbar, eventually getting back  
to the Find box and then the Found List. You Order May Vary.

Good Luck,
