Cause

This issue occurs if you specify either All Pages or Open Pages when you perform a Find and Replace operation in your Web site. This issue occurs because the master page has no protected regions. Only the Web pages attached to the master page contain protected regions. Therefore, if the Find and Replace operation generates changes to the master page, non-editable regions of the attached pages may also be updated and changed.

More information

Master-page functionality permits a Web professional to create a Web-page template, or a set of templates, that can be quickly used to build additional pages on a Web site. Master pages also permit the Web professional to lock certain regions of a page so that content providers cannot change or compromise important page code or functionality.

Finally, master pages permit the Web professional to identify regions of Web pages that can be updated dynamically by a content provider or by replicating a change from the master page to all the Web pages that are attached to the master page.
