User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

The find toolbar will only search for the first letter of the text you want to
search if you paste it into the find on this page dialog.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy some text (any text)
2.CTRL+F
3.paste it

Actual Results:  
It will search and highlight only the first letter of that text.

Expected Results:  
Searched for the entire pasted text. Very annoying if you search a long url on
some page and you have it copied.
WFM on current trunk CVS build.  I've never had this problem at all.

Always reproducible by:
1) Copy "delphi 7" without quotes to clipboard
2) Go to http://www.borland.com/delphi/
3) Ctrl + F to trigger the find bar
4) Ctrl + V to paste

Actual Results:
The character "D" on link "Developers" under "Products" on the left is highlighted.

Expected Results:
Should give "No match."
And the weird thing was that it didn't find the first "D" either as text or link

Not really a major bug though... (guess I can't change the unconfirmed staus to
new...)

FWIW, when trying to reproduce duplicate bug 299835, I easily reproduced it
once, but all the following attempts failed: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT
