What Search popup taskbar in Firefox? Like Clrt+F “find in page” is appear!. It’s a virus spam. Or what is it problem Bug?

Now Version 114 on Windows 11 64

When I print the keyboard to find in a box or typing wrong, then search popup taskbar in Firefox is appear! Why? it's like click the menu bar F10 button "edit" followed by "find in page".? What is it? According to the sample image. Sometimes there is a lot of code for writing a website! It is a virus spam. Or what is it?

There was a user asking this problem. Which is like my problem as follows

“Whenever using Firefox, I keep getting a pop-up box on the left side of the bottom of the browser which seems to search the webpage for whatever is in the box. This happens if the cursor is not exactly in a specific search box or designated area on the screen. I can reproduce the problem by clicking on the page (just the page, not a box or input area) then typing. It may be a function but has become so overwhelmingly annoying that I find it necessary to find a way to deactivate it. If I click something else like another window and don't click the mouse exactly on a specific search box or input area when I go back to the page, it inputs the text I am typing down in this box. I don't like this; I don't want this. Please help me rid the browser of this menace. I put an image of the problem below and circled the offensive box. Thanks for any help given. I did try to search for this issue to see if there was already a solution but could not find one, hence posting this question. I just found out this is the same box that pops up when you click the menu bar button "edit" followed by "find in page". Don't know why in the world this thing is popping up by itself when it is neither needed or desired.”

I use firefox More than 100 versions and no problem But my problem would be like above. Thank you for helping each other.

Hello,

It seems like you are experiencing an issue with a search popup taskbar appearing in Firefox when trying to find something on a webpage. Based on the information provided, it appears that the popup box appears even when you are not in a specific search box or designated area on the screen.

This issue could be related to a feature in Firefox called "Find in Page," which allows you to search for specific text on a webpage. However, it seems to be appearing unexpectedly and causing annoyance.

As a Firefox support volunteer, I would recommend the following steps to help resolve this issue:

Clear your Firefox browsing history and cache: Go to the Firefox menu, click on "Options," select "Privacy & Security," scroll down to the "Cookies and Site Data" section, and click on "Clear Data." Make sure to check the boxes for "Cookies and Site Data" and "Cached Web Content" and then click "Clear."

Disable any extensions or add-ons: Some extensions or add-ons may interfere with the browser's functionality. Try disabling any recently installed extensions or add-ons and see if the issue persists.

Reset Firefox settings: If the problem continues, you can try resetting Firefox to its default settings. This will remove any customizations and preferences but may help resolve the issue. To do this, go to the Firefox menu, click on "Help," select "Troubleshooting Information," and click on the "Refresh Firefox" button.

If the issue persists after trying these steps, it would be helpful to gather more information. I would suggest to provide the following details:

The specific version of Firefox they are using (e.g., Firefox 114.0) The operating system and its version (e.g., Windows 10) Any relevant error messages or codes they are encountering

Resetting Firefox or refreshing doesn't fix anything here. The first recommendation seems to work until Firefox updates then I have to go back in and uncheck it - AGAIN. Grrr. This is a security leak. I have literally been typing passwords in when the so called "find" search bar slides in and takes over completely, then records what I am typing. I have talked with many people now who have quit using Firefox because of this one mishandled security breach. I shouldn't have to search for a tick box, for something that shouldn't be "on", unless I specifically want it on. Adding insult to injury, when I search the web for this, nothing comes up. I am forced to log in here to search the posts. Then the only post that comes up is this garbled - non - English speakers plea for help. This shouldn't even be a thing in 2023.
