Screen Shot of bug
This is not only with that.

I start typing in an inputbox or a textbox and the "Find as you type" is beeped
too. Not only with Microsoft IME or things like that. I'm one Windows XP (french).

I don't know how to reprocuduce this bug, but I have to call the find function
manually to stop the find as you type.

I'll try to find more information about this bug... This is an important bug guys!

Only Firefox peers can + a blocking flag. The correct action is to request ?
blocking. and typically, a bug should be at least confirmed before you request it. 

Changing the + to ?
Flags: blocking-aviary1.0PR+ → blocking-aviary1.0PR?
Sorry, didn't know that.

Getting close to 1.0PR, I'm going to jump the gun here and help with triaging
the blocking nominations and say this isn't a blocker. Since there's no patch
and its not even confirmed.

If you'd like to request blocking 1.0 you're welcome to. Though I'd suggest
getting the bug confirmed first. :-)

Is this bug still happen? I think find toolbar doesn't have this problem.
If current build has this problem, this may be fixed by bug 55751.
