User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510
BuildID:    2002051009

After selecting a page frome the history window, when I hit CTRL-F to search
that page, it instead searches history.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Go|History from the menu
2. Select any page in your history, and double-click on it.
3. Hit CTRL-F.

Actual Results:  The "Find in History" window pops up.

Still see it in 1.0RC3 (2002052309) on Linux.
Reporter: IS this still a problem with 1.1b ?

Reporter:  after you double-click the site in the history window, which window
has focus (the history window or the browser window)?

->XP Apps: GUI Features -- This bug does not appear on Windows.  I don't have a
working linux build right now, but tomorrow or the next I will test and confirm
this.  It shouldn't be hard to fix this, as it is simply a focus issue.

This bug can be closed as it's not present in the current build: Mozilla/5.0
(X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031029.

Double-clicking in the history window gives focus to the browser window in which
the URL is being opened, and Ctrl-F searches in the page as it should.

I still see this bug in

  Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040101

exactly as described here.  It works fine in Firebird, though.

This could be a window manager issue. You say in comment #6 that the history
window retains its focus, which is why Ctrl-F activates "Find in history". In my
case, double-click in the history window raises the browser and gives it the
focus  (IceWM in click-to-focus mode). Could you give details of your window
manager and its setup?

sawfish v1.0, click-to-focus.

Reassigning obsolete bugs to their respective Seamonkey owners (i.e. nobody). 
If you want this fixed for Firefox, change the Product and Component accordingly
and reassign back to me.

I still see this with linux trunk 2005032805 with click-to-focus, although
sloppy focus works fine.
