How do you search for a friend's (or your own) comment on a wall post from months ago on Facebook?

some one told me online to hit either shift or control and something else that gives you a box to type the name in but I don't remember what it was. I was trying to find out by searching for it maybe this will remind someone of it. what it did was highlight your name and made it easier to find on the list. – user69576 May 30 '14 at 4:12

Currently the only way seems to be browse and manually search via the Friend's connection

I don't think this works anymore, I can't seem to get it to work. – Oxinabox Mar 18 at 9:16
