I see this also in Windows. Also in 184.108.40.206, but not in 1.0.8.

Summary: Tab bar "breaks" if you switch tabs while it's open → Find bar "breaks" if you switch tabs while it's open
Hmm, focus is fun! can be worked around, marking minor. The findbar code probably should have an event listener for the tab select event we're adding, and close on tab switch if there's a timeout pending, before the tab switch happens.
Severity: normal → minor

Oops, thanks for the summary change, Phil... no idea how I messed that up. :)
Does this still happen on the trunk (since bug 288254 landed)?
Yes, it still happens.
This is not only happening on tab change but also when the browser content changes. STR: 1. Open any page and search for a word that is not there 2. Go to a different page (by entering an adress in the adress bar/clicking a link/you name it) that contains the word you searched for Result: find field has "not found" look. Expected: it should have the normal "found" look and the first hit should be highlighted This bug affects Instantbird as well: we are encountering it on the logs viewer which has a permanently visible findbar with changing log files. The same problems as mentioned above occur here.
Scratch comment 8, I'm referring to something completely different than initially being reported here. I'm sorry for the bugspam I caused.
8 years later: I can't reproduce this.
