The behaviour is exactly as I didn't focused form input (input-text or textarea), but it is so. This is related to option General / Accessibility / [ ] Begin finding when you begin typing. When this bug comes, I can't input anything. Even opening new window doesn't helps. The simplest solution is to close all Firefox windows and start Firefox again. Another solution is to disable and then enable this option ("Begin finding when you begin typing") Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. enable option General / Accessibility / [ ] Begin finding when you begin typing 2. open page with html form 3. start filling this form
Yeah, this is a known bug. It's probably a duplicate of one of the bugs that is blocking bug 320465. What is blocking a fix for this issue, is the fact that there isn't a way to 100% reproduce this.
