(In reply to comment #1) > Bug 307375 ? > Difficult for me to judge as the discussion for bug #307375 is a bit technical. The symptoms sound very similar however, I have not performed any of the steps suggested at the start of bug #307375 to replicate the bug. I simply find that visiting some webpages, I am ocassionally unable to enter text into a text input. I have since discovered that if I switch to a different application (other than Firefox) then switch back (to Firefox) the problem has disappeared - i.e I am now able to enter text normally, without the Find toolbar appearing.
It is often a problem in forums and can be extremely irritating.
