Here's another workaround for this bug: The Find and Replace dialog box
has a Highlight All Items Found In checkbox. If you select it, Word
highlights every occurrence of the search string. You can then scroll
through with the mouse (*not* the keyboard) to find the one result
you're looking for.

That having been said, I much prefer the CTRL+PageUp and CTRL+PageDown
shortcuts that were mentioned by others. They're fast, they're
keyboard-based, and they work every time.
