User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US) Netscape6/6.1 Build Identifier: I downloaded the mozilla-i656-pc-linux-gnu-1.2.1-sea.tar.gz file to my home directory, unpacked it, and ran, as root, the mozilla-installer file to instal into /usr/local/mozilla-1.2.1. As my normal user account I edited ~/.mozilla/default/1n2ap1oy.slt/user.js and added the line user_pref("accessibility.typeaheadfind.autostart", false); but when I ran /usr/local/mozilla-1.2.1/mozilla the typeaheadfind was still activiating whether I typed an initial ' or / or not. Editing the same user.js file to include user_pref("accessibility.typeaheadfind", false); did in fact turn it off completely. The file describing typeaheadfind, http://www.mozilla.org/projects/ui/accessibility/typeaheadfind.html, linked from the release notes for 1.2.1 indicates that there should be a section in the Preferences:Advanced panel that configures keyboard navigation, but I could not find it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Emile: Can you try a more recent build of Mozilla? Moz 1.3b has a GUI pref to control it, and it worksforme If I uncheck: Preferences | Advanced | Keyboard Navigation | Find automatically... Find as you type is disabled. Typing does nothing. Moz 1.3b (2003021008) / Win2K
i do assume mozilla was not running when you changed the JS file, right =)
It's wfm, changing prefs.js is no longer necessary with the GUI, and the build with the error is many months old. Resolving worksforme. Reporter: If you have the same problem with a recent build, please file a new bug.
