Fast find gets invoked unintentionally
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 When I click on a link in Thunderbird to open a url, sometimes the fastfind incremental search feature gets invoked and has the keyboard focus. I can't seem to wrest the focus away from it. When I restart Firefox, all is well. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a link which includes a cgi form with Thunderbird (not clear that this step is necessary, but I'm 4 for 4 with it now.) 2. Start to type in the cgi form. 3. Witness that the characters go to the incremental search window, which of course tries to find the characters in the page. Actual Results: Step 3 states it. Expected Results: The fast find (sub) window should NOT have been invoked and the incremental search should not have been performed.
Oh, I see that I had the "begin finding when I begin typing" config item set in the accesibility config group. If this is the cause of my bug, then please close it. However, I don't see the utility of this config item, at least when combined with the fact that the user may wish to enter cgi form info.
Firefox should not open the Find Toolbar if you have focused the textarea manually. If it does, it is a bug. The same issue is reported in bug 258285, but that bug is not reproducable, so if you can give us steps to reproduce the bug, please do.
Well my comment regarding the accessibility does not seem to make any difference. I cannot repro it right now with the steps I posted, no matter if that config option is on or not. I shall try to capture my steps when it happens again.
all right, if you find a 100% steps to reproduce (or any ideas), please let us know. Without additional info, the bug is essentially the same as 258285 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 258285 ***
