User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040918 Firefox/0.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040918 Firefox/0.10 The FastFind toolbar no longer comes up when I do a "Find As You Type". The only way to make it appear is to hit Ctrl-F. Even then, it doesn't actually find anything, as the find previous and find next functions are completely non-functional. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1) Load a webpage containing some text 2) Begin typing to start "Find As You Type" (Make sure to use text that appears multiple times in the page) 3) Hit Ctrl-G to find next, or Shift-Ctrl-G to find previous 4) Type some more text which is NOT in the page. 5) Hit Ctrl-F to bring up the FastFind toolbar 6) Enter some text that appears on the page multiple times 7) Verify that the toolbar is doing ANYTHING by clicking the "highlight" button. 8) Click the "find next" and "find previous" buttons Actual Results: First 3 steps: Typing does not bring up the FastFind toolbar. Typed text is initially found, but find next and find previous functions do not work from either the keyboard OR the edit menu. 4th step: No "text not found" beep Remaining steps Toolbar comes up and you can type text in the find field, however matching text is not selected in the page. The bar is obviously working in some fashion because clicking "highlight" will turn on and off highlighting in the page. Find next and previous buttons do nothing at all. Expected Results: First 3 steps: Beginning "find as you type" should bring up the FastFind toolbar. Using the find next and previous functions should... well... find the next and previous occurrences of the search string. Step 4: I should hear the "text not found" beep. Remaining steps: Toolbar should come up and typed text should be immediately highlighted as it is found. Find next and previous buttons should find next and previous occurrences of typed text. (Also, I believe the background of the entry text box is supposed to change color to indicate whether the text was matched or not. This is not occurring.) I thought this might be tied to installing a theme or some extensions, so here is a list of what I installed: Theme: Noia 2.0 Extreme Extensions: RadialContext Linkification FoxyTunes I uninstalled the theme and disabled the extensions, but to no avail. Then I deleted the entire user profile directory and tried again, but still nada.
I didn't explicitly mention this, but all of the above items DID work when I initially installed Firefox 1.0PR. I have no idea when they stopped working. I still suspect some problem with installing either a theme or an extension. I'd think that if that were the cause then deleting the profile directory should fix it, but it didn't. Also, I did check all the related about:config items, and they are set the way they should be for the features to work properly.
Maybe this is of some help, I get the same problem with FAYT, and I've noticed all these errors in the JS console: Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80570015 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CI_RETURNED_FAILURE) [nsIJSCID.createInstance]" nsresult: "0x80570015 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CI_RETURNED_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://global/content/bindings/browser.xml :: get_fastFind :: line 242" data: no] Also, the FAYT seems to still work fine in the HTML source view.
