The status bar doesn't display the link URL when using find-as-you-type and pressing tab or shift-tab to navigate to the next/previous link.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type in text that occurs on the page, thereby activating FAYT search.
2. Press tab or shift-tab.

Actual Results:  
The status bar displays the last status like "Done" or "Connecting to ...".

Expected Results:  
The status bar displays the link URL.

When pressing tab another time, the status bar works fine again.

Reproducible with Firefox Mozilla 1.7.12, SeaMonkey 1.0 and SeaMonkey 1.5a/20060130 show 'Find stopped.' instead of the link URL when FAYT is still active (the real 'Find stopped.' message is not yet showing in the statusbar).

Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Yes, it still happens with Firefox 2, but only if the matching text is a link itself.  Steps to reproduce:

1. Type in text that occurs in a link on the page.  Now the link is marked and the status bar displays the link target.
2. Press tab.  The next link is activated, but the status bar is empty.  Instead, it should show the link target of the next link.

This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.8 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
