We hide it in showBrowserSearch but we should have hid it in showHomePager*.
Note: WIP builds on bug 1179731.

I tried the simple thing and just hid the find in page bar in showHomePagerWithAnimator, but when opening the HomePager w/ the find in page bar up, it causes the bar to close and reopen (which is more awful than having the find in page bar open on about:home).

In a non-attached patch, I also added a PropertyAnimationListener and tried hiding it at the end of the animation, but the keyboard and bar would close at the end of the animation, leaving the user in about:home without the home screen.

The latter is more likely the solution, with some refocus magic in place.

However, it's not worth the cycles to get this working now.

Hi, Amit - you're welcome to give it a go! We'll assign you when you post a patch.

However, we typically recommend starting with a [good first bug], such as bug 1146735, which have minimal programming requirements so you can get used to the Mozilla tools and processes. If you'd like to work on that first, post a comment over there and the same deal applies - we'll assign you when you post a patch.

Additionally, this bug may be challenging because the obvious answer does not work (see the WIP) and soft keyboard control is typically more challenging than it should be.
Hey, Amit.

Turns out this unexpected behavior is fixed by the patch in bug 1181969 - it turns out the find in page bar closed the keyboard when it was hidden - and my WIP is correct.

Would you like to take bug 1146735 for now and I'll give you a more complex bug after that's completed?
