I take it you're referring to TeXShop's built-in editor using the  
OgreKit Find Panel, right? Then yes, I see the same as you on a  
MacBook: LiveUpdate not working. I'd never tried it before, so I can't  
tell whether it worked before 10.5.3.

By the way, there seems to be a problem in the French locale for the  
Apple Find Panel (selected through TeXShop Preferences > Document >  
Find Panel): in the English locale, the Edit > Find submenu includes  
an item "Jump to Selection" (Cmd-J), as do Apple applications (like  
TextEditor or Pages); in the French locale this item is replaced by  
"Tout Rechercher" (= Find All) with the same shortcut Cmd-J but is  
greyed out.
