That's bad! I suggest a preference setting for disabling backspace navigation! Cheers Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Perhaps we should reopen bug 177005. My fix was to beep and require 1 more backspace. Perhaps the fix should have been to disabled backspace when typeaheadfind starts, until typeahead is cancelled by some other means than backspace. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 177005 ***

I don't want backspace to do any navigation as it produces many mistakes on pages with forms. Thus I reconfigured the key bindings in platformNavigationBindings.xul: Remove <!-- Supporting IE forward and back accelerators out of courtesy to transitioning IE users --> <key keycode="VK_BACK" command="Browser:Back"/> <key keycode="VK_BACK" command="Browser:Forward" modifiers="shift"/> and backspace navigation is no longer a problem.
