While using the find in content bar at the bottom of the Firefox window, if you have "whole words" enabled, typing in the search box causes the system's error beep to play with every keystroke until there's at least one match. This is incredibly annoying, especially if you're looking for a specific word -- getting an error for each keystroke while typing your search term is an unnecessary distraction.

This has been annoying me too :) Thanks for filing - I'll get back to this asap.

Bug 1463860 - Don't play a beep when the find string is not find when Whole Word matching is enabled; it simply beeps too much.
