When I type word to search in the Find box, Firefox will jump to the first grouping of letters it recognizes. I have to click back in the find box to continue typing my word. How can I make this stop?

I wanted to search for the word "medieval" on a web page. I started typing the word in the Find box. After I had typed "med", Firefox put the cursor on the word "medicate" in the web page. I have to click back in the Find box to continue typing my word. This is extremely annoying because sometimes I have to click back in the Find box after every letter.
