User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041207 Firefox/1.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041207 Firefox/1.0+

With a CVS trunk build from last night, there is a strange (and
non-deterministic) typeahead find behaviour when browsing from page to page:
after selecting one link with typeahead find, the typeahead find does not find
valid links on the next page. This will be clearer with the "steps to reproduce".

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start from a fresh profile (altough a fresh window or tab should be enough);
2. "begin finding when you begin typing" on;
3. go to <URL: http://www.mozilla.org/ > and click on the page to set the focus;
4. type "all pro" then enter;
5. type "fir";
6. wait some tipe, or hit backspace or escape, and then retype "fir".

Actual Results:  
Step 4 selects the "all products" links and opens the <URL:
http://www.mozilla.org/products/ >. This is fine.
At step 5, the typeahead find rings the bell to signal a "not found" error.
At step 6, the typeahead find finds the "Firefox" link.

Expected Results:  
The typeahead find should have found the "Firefox" link at step 5.
