When using "ctrl-f" to find on the page, you need to click somewhere on the page before the input box appears. The default input is not the input field, so when you click in the input field, the box disappears. Clisck somewhere on the page to repeat the whole process.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press ctrl-f
2. Click somewhere on the page
3. Click on the input field
4. Click somewhere on the page

Expected Results:  
Expected the input box to immediately appear when ctrl-f is pressed, then accept my input, then search and return results upon clicking on the ok button.

Nothing else to say.
Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey v1.1.9 ?

With this build (and my usual Preferences), Ctrl-F opens a search bar between chrome & content without waiting for anything.

Chad, do you still experience this problem in a supported build (currently SeaMonkey 2.0.11 or later)?

In 2.0.12pre the search dialog comes up instantaneously with pressing CTRL-F. Further on trunk we are now using a search bar so the UI has changed.

The 1.x branch is now EOLed. No more changes can be made so WONTFIX/INCOMPLETE. Closing as WORKSFORME on 2.0.x (Also the 2.0 branch is only accepting security and stability fixes). On trunk this bug is INVALID since the UI is now completely different.
