find as you type steals focus from some form fields
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 if you have "begin finding when you begin typing", then for some input boxen in web forms, as you begin typing your input, the find dialog will appear, and steal focus. You will then have to click inside the input box after every character, in order to be able to type the next. I believe I've only seen this in password entries. Sometimes, restarting the browser helps. Right now I can reproduce that on https://mail.yahoo.com (note https protocol). I have password remembered for that page FWIW. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. choose accessibility/ "begin finding when you begin typing" 2, go to https://mail.yahoo.com ( note https) 3. try typing in the password field Actual Results: see above Expected Results: kept the focus in the input box - I don't need to search the page for my password.
it seems "begin finding as you start typing" needs to be on when the browser starts.
