Entering a number on the numpad, automatically starts CTRL+F

Hey,

since the recent Update 84.1, whenever I type something on the Numpad, Firefox would automatically start and search with CTRL+F through the website. This is getting extremely annoying because I use my Numpad regularly. What can I do?

Chosen solution

This shouldn't happen if a text area or input field has focus.

You can disable this "Search for text when you start typing" feature in "Options/Preferences -> General -> Browsing".
