User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 When you enter search text in the search bar (to the right of the address bar), the text remains there until it's replaced by a new search, or until you exit the application. This means that someone can look at your screen and see the last thing you searched for, even hours later. Its security impact is minimal, but still unfortunate. Ideally, when the search page is returned from Google or wherever, the search bar should be cleared at the same time. I'm not sure if this is "normal", "trivial", or an RFE; I'll leave that determination to someone more experienced. (I'm leaving it set to the default "normal" for now.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Type text in search bar (such as "cute naked hotties"), press Enter. Search results appear in active tab. 2. Click "home" button or otherwise navigate to an unrelated page. Actual Results: Text "cute naked hotties" remains in search bar. Your significant other can now look at your screen and ask, "Honey, why were you searching for that?" Expected Results: Search bar text should clear as soon as results page is returned from search engine.
