Disable auto copy on find/search bar (Ctrl+F)
Every time I press Ctrl+F to find something on a webpage, it automatically copies the previous search I made that is left typed in the find bar. E.g. I press Ctrl+F, the find bar shows up and already has the word "web" typed in the find bar from a previous search. If I press Ctrl+V on a different page now, "web" shows up instead of whatever I had originally copied before even attempting to search something.
How do I prevent this from happening? Would appreciate any help, thanks in advance.

This seems to be an unintended side effect of adding increased support for Command+e.
I'm not sure whether it affects all Mac users or is related to a particular configuration, and I haven't seen a solution yet.
- When I use Command-F to find text on a page in Ffx, the text I type into the "find" box gets put onto my clipboard, replacing what is there.
