I'm sure you check this, but, there is definitely more than 1 match on the page right? If there's only 1 match it looks like nothing is happening as you hit Ctrl+G. This is without the find toolbar right? What happens if you type / first and then use the shortcuts? Also, what happens if you hit / first and then click on "find next" in the find toolbar?

I have the same problem. I am also running Gentoo but I am using KDE as the WM. First off, yes, the search item exists more than once. If I put "/" first, ctrl-g and f3 still don't work. If I bring up the search bar (ctrl-f) and enter some text (that exists multiple times) and hit Find Next nothing happens. It doesn't find the first match or any subsequent matches. Find next on the toolbar also never finds the next occurrence.
So it doesn't work with the find toolbar either. Have either of you ever set any accessibility.typeaheadfind prefs directly? I wonder why more people aren't seeing this.
I have not changed anything in the about:config (though I have read through it). As too the lack of reports, I know my boss (Firefox 1.0PR on Gentoo) has the same problem.
1. Is Gentoo the common thread here? 2. Is everyone building their own?
Apparently this is a Gentoo bug: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64196 see also: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=226525&highlight=firefox http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=225617&highlight=firefox I haven't verified it yet, but the Gentoo binary version is suppose to work fine. All the bad firefox installs with problems we had were built from ebuilds (source). Thanks for your help!
Gentoo-only problem. Being taken care of by that project.
also w4m (but am using fedora core 2).
