Created attachment 130443 [details] A request for information on how to reproduce the bug. I have been trying to reproduce the bug using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030826 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1+ and was not able to. The steps to reproduce the bug is not explicit.
1. load page by clicking on "URL" above. 2. hit "g" 3. hit "i" 4. hit "m" 5. notice how it says "link not found" in the status bar, also notice that "gimp" is clearly mentioned on the page.
Created attachment 130572 [details] Test repeated three refreshed times I reloaded the page three times and each time typing gimp and pressing the return key produced the gimp directory using; Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030826 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1+
I've found that while going through a slideshow on Yahoo! News, that in the slide show there are next links. So, upon each page load, and after the status bar says "Done", I start typing "xt" since xt ususally doesn't show up in any other links on that page. If I do so within 1-2 seconds of the page being loaded, i.e. see Done in the status bar and immediately start typing, the text is not found. Also, if you start typing before the page is loaded (or at least when find as you type allows you to start) the text isn't found. Yet if you wait .5-2 seconds after the page loads, it works. I tried this on several sites. Same results. Running Windows XP, Firefox 1.0PR. Could extensions cause this? Extensions I'm running: DOM Inspector, All-in-One Guestures, ieview, Web Developer I've attached the screenshot.
Created attachment 159749 [details] A screenshot of when Firefox does not Find as you Type, though it should.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 win XP fresh install, no extensions. Same issue Find as you type fails while the page is loading. The key buffer is still filling while you type, so you have to clear it when the pages is fully loaded
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050306 Firefox/1.0.1 (Debian package 1.0.1-2) I have the same problem on two different machines. Find As You Type isn't able to find links until a few seconds after the page finishes loading. Note that I have accessibility.typeaheadfind.linksonly set to true. ctrl-g will then find the text after the initial "doesn't work pause" is over. I use keyboard navigation via FAYT on http://z.iwethey.org/forums, and I have to pause after each page load before it actually works. Or, I can type my phrase in and then hit ctrl-g a few times until it works. This problem is only apparent when I start typing for the link during the page load or just after the page load. If I pause for a few seconds, it will work. As an example, load http://z.iwethey.org/forums/render/board/show?boardid=1 and type in "y b" (the letter y, a space, the letter b) right after the page loads. You can refresh and try again if it works the first time. If you have linksonly turned on, this should highlight the link at the top of the page "IWETHEY Board", but usually I just get "not found" and I have to try again.
Note that I didn't have this problem in preceding versions of Firefox (0.8, IIRC), only after I upgraded to 1.0.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3 I can reproduce this way: 1. Open new window 2. Open this bugzilla page in it 3. Middle-click on the second link in comment #8 4. Click on that tab and try using find-as-you-type. This fails. 5. Now close the tab and copy the link 6. Create a new tab (Ctrl-T) 7. Paste the link into the address bar 8. Try using find-as-you-type. Works fine Could this be an issue of tab focus? Incidentaly, though find doesn't work, highlight still nicely highlights the appropriate bits on the page
Starting FireFox in Safe Mode for me seems to fix this problem, so it may be related to one of the many extensions installed on my system. Is this a dupe of/duped by 270546?
Noticed an interesting effect that this problem seemed to occur more on a faster connection. Testing with this, observed a more accurate way to reproduce this bug. Open a link in the background under a new tab. Let the page fully load. Now go to the tab and Find as you type fails. Do the same, but go there before the page has fully loaded. It now works fine. HOWEVER, following up my safe-mode comment, I tried uninstalling all my extensions and re-installing them one by one to see which was the culprit. The strange thing was, with them all re-installed, the problem had gone on my system.
Here is a page I made to help reproduce this bug which I hear is fixed in the newest beta but have not verified: http://somethinginteresting.org/firefox_bug_test.html
Can't reproduce even with the 'links only' option. SeaMonkey/2.17.1
