Do not know about other keyboard layouts. I think this would be an argument to let the user choose between several keys to relate to typeahead, that do not cause any problems with other functions. I suggest - and # or + on a German keyboard for example. Maybe one could implement a drop down menu with key settings for different keyboard layout to keep the prefs clean. SHIFT+7 for the / does not work in my build whereas SHIFT+# works fine. The former does not work when choosing from the menu too. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030114 bug 176296 got closed, that is why I filed a new one Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Summary: Type Ahead on int'l keyboard layouts (' and / only accessible with SHIFT+X) → Find text/lin as you type on int'l keyboard layouts (>'< and >/< only accessible with SHIFT+someKey)
I am confirming this bug as I have found no dupes.

Ever confirmed: true
I'm having the same problem. When attempting to type in a text field, the button assigned to ' (on an English keyboard it's the dash key to the right of 0) brings up the Find bar at the bottom of the screen. This is with a Spanish (International Sort) keyboard layout on Windows Server 2003 64-bit in the lastest nightly branch build.
