I've just posted in the mozillazine forum and while typing a ' the find toolbar
popped up and the focus was changed from the textbox on the website to the
search bar.
for some reason i couldn't copy/paste text during this time either... the menu
entry was disabled (i think i've filed/read a bug about disabled copy/paste a
long time ago and it was fixed).

after clicking Help/About and closing it copy/paste was enabled again (like the
old bug i cant find right now) and the find bar didnt appear again.

I've tried several times, but i couldnt reproduce this bug (in this post
pressing ' works as it should)

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce
Steps to Reproduce:




dont know if it matters or not, but this was on a german Windows XP SP2 PC
if you start with a ' or /  it will happen

can be fixed by typing

 about:config 

in the locationbar (urlbar)
than type

 find

in the filterbar
than leftclick twice on

 accessibility.typeaheadfind
 accessibility.typeaheadfind.autostart
 
that should fix it

actually... it does not happen.
i typed a ' in this textbox but nothing happened (except the character '
appeared in this textbox, but no Searchbar like yesterday in the mozillazine forum.)
