If you go to a web site with a search field, type in a value, and then hit enter
(or click the given search button)...and then click "Stop" to modify your search
term(s), the search field becomes inaccessible.

For example, if you realize only after submitting the search query that you
misspelled something, you cannot click "Stop" and then re-enter the search term,
because the search field itself becomes inaccessible to mouse-clicks. You have
to reload the page entirely to re-enter your search query.

I think that this is actually a failure to "blank" the scren or otherwise start
painting for the next page load.  I suspect that the reason the field becoes
unusable is that the entire page is actually gone, just not repainted yet.  Over
to layout.

I believe Asa is correct. Earlier today I was at (now using build
2001032613) using their inkjet printer search form. After submitting the form
and getting no results, I clicked the Back button, not realizing there was a
"modify your query link nearby." When I went to click on that link, it was not
accessible. Nor was the search field at the top of the web page (which is on
every page).

With the April 3 Mac build, I'm not able to reproduce this issue. Tested under
Mac OS 9.1. Reporter, please download the latest mac build and try this again.

Using Mac Mozilla .9, this feature now seems to work for me as well.
