If I try to enter text in text fields (I try to login with username and
password), 'Find as you type' is automatically turned on, and I cannot input
text in any way.
I found this problem also in

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Just visit those pages and try to input some text.

Actual Results:  
It is impossible to write in those text fields.

Expected Results:  
Find as you type should not be turned on.
How do I get the username/password fields?  The page you link to does not have
any that I can see....

There is an input field in the left column, under "CERCA NEL SITO". The problem
is that I cannot get the focus in that input field by clicking in it. Actually
right click will focus the field, but left click has no efect. I think that's
the real issue here, not find as you type. 
Site sets:

function disableselect(e){
return false

//if NS6
if (window.sidebar){

This means that if window.sidebar is defined (in Mozilla it is) the mousedown
event's default action is cancelled.

Text fields are focused onmousedown.  So cancelling the event makes the
textfields not take focus.

Not a Mozilla bug, but a deliberate decision on the part of the site.

Username and password text fields are in the site linked on the top of this page.
It's my website, so i'm going to correct it soon.
Anyway I think 'Find as you type' should not take part!
Why not?  It kicks in if you type when the main body of the page is focused...
which is the case here.

You're right Boris, I'm sorry.
My site is fixed now, so don't use it anymore for testing.
