I'm not seeing "<" or ">" on the buttons.

Trying it out on 2.4.0 Alpha 3, it seems to work very well now, thank you again.  But I
am seeing two "Find" and two "Replace" buttons.  Not a functionality problem — they
both work — but presumably some kind of error.

You mean probably ' < Find ' and ' Find > ' (means find backward and find forward)
Same for 'replace'

If you click on the document window, the "find next" key (⌘-G ) will
do its job and get you to the next occurrence of the search string.
Without that, however, if focus remains in the Find window, nothing
happens at all. That is what is non-intuitive.  In most other apps,
You can search for what you want with ⌘-F, and then simply pressing
⌘-G gets you the next occurrence, with no other steps necessary.

You might be pleased to hear that your message inspired me to go ahead
and fix that for 2.4.0 this morning.
