I tested with lazarus.lpi: It works.
Do you have english messages?

It didn't matter for me. I now set the ItemIndex. Does that fix it?

That's the interesting difference between the codebrowser and a find  
declaration. Find declaration will search only via the uses sections  
and search paths. The codebrowser searches in whole packages and  
projects. That's why it can tell you in which unit an identifier is  
If you set scope to 'project' it will search in all units of the  
project. If you check the 'with packages' it will search in all  
packages required by the project too. This normally includes the FCL  
package, so it will search in all units installed by FPC.
