In Opera, it's possible to paste the copied string in the clipboard to FAYT mode.
This could be achieved by using the alternative Ctrl + F; however, it's sloooow. :)
FAYT is simply the replacement of Ctrl + F in my life.
It's of high use when you've to find the foreign characters as we've no idea to
type it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type / or ' to enable FAYT mode.
2. Ctrl + V. (Make sure you've copied *sth*)
Actual Results:  
Nothing happened.

Expected Results:  
Paste command should work in FAYT mode.
Firefox already has this with the find toolbar. I'm not interested in
reinventing the wheel with old FAYT. People might even be pretty confused by it
when there's no find textfield.

Aaron, Firefox's Find toolbar isn't focused if you hit ' or /.  It's only
focused if you hit Ctrl+F.

This bug is fixed on Fx. But not so SeaMonkey. Because SeaMonkey isn't using editor widget for FAYT. It's causes from many bugs. We should port Find Toolbar from Firefox to SaeMonkey. This is bug 97023.
