no blocker (first report= doesn't block development) Have you tried a new profile ?
Severity: blocker → critical
please try disabling find-as-you-type (edit->preferences->advanced->keybord nav). see bug 198345
Disabling find-as-you-type has no effect. Additionaly none of these attempted solutions work either: Creating a new profile Deleting all the plugins within /usr/local/mozilla/plugins, rm -rf $HOME/.mozilla So that mozilla must use a clean configuration.
Scratch that, I had to go into .mozilla/blah/prefs and edit pref.js manually to set user_pref("accessibility.typeaheadfind.autostart", false); as mozilla was hanging instead of closing down cleanly, which means that setting wasn't being saved. No mozilla works fine (although with no type ahead).
