Mandriva Linux 2007.1, KDE 3.5.4, Fx3a7 + Fx2.0.0.6

1. Open 2 tabs
2. In one of them, start typing something and let "Find as you type" find something for you (the selected text is in green)
3. Before the text becomes unselected, go to the other tab
4. Come back to the tab in which you did your search
5. The selected text is still selected (now in blue), but typing a new text does nothing. The "Find as you type" feature stopped working.

Workaround: click anywhere in the page to unselect the text previously found.

works fine for me, *if* accessibility.typeaheadfind is enabled. If it's not, fails as described.
