User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1

After dismissing a "Do you want Firefox to remember this password" message, the feature "Search for text when I start typing" is no longer active. To get it working again you have to click in the page area, to regain focus.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on "Search for text when I start typing".
2. Go to a site that requires you to log in, fill in username/password and submit.
4. In response to the "Do you want Firefox to remember this password?" prompt, press Alt-n or click "Not now".
5. Start typing to search for some text.
Actual Results:  
The search does not take place. To get it working you first have to click in the page area, to regain focus.

Expected Results:  
The search should start straight away.

I was considering setting this as Minor as there is a quick workaround for the mouse, but the only workaround I can find for people who cannot use a mouse would be to press tab a number of times to regain focus on the page, so I have put it as Major.
