Regarding 1. window.find or document.execCommand('FindString') are nonstandard.  Safari does scroll/highlight but I don't know for other browsers. Discussion is at https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/3539

Regarding 2., window.find should do the scroll, if it does not it is a bug :-) I already mentioned bug 163911 on mobile safari.
