find function automatically stops your typing in the find bar after it finds a small string of text. how do i make it keep on accepting input?
whenever i use command+f it normally pulls up the find bar.
the annoying part is when im actually searching for a string of text. i type in part of what im looking for (a small string, this problem starts when the string reached 3 characters. i can theoretically make it find a large string of characters if i can type each character within about .2-.3 seconds of eachother) it jumps to the part of the page the string is on and highlights it.
after it does that, it wont let me input anymore information in the bar until i click the text box again. even after i do this, it stops searching after every character i type in.
this also happens after i stop typing for about a fraction second (ie. i have to type what i want to find rapidly in order to avoid this)
this is especially annoying when i make a typo in the find bar and it jumps and highlights to the part of the page before i have a chance to press the backspace button; after i hit the backspace button, its already too late to delete part of the string and the browser goes back at least one (sometimes more) web pages.
an example of this problem would be: i want to search for the word "firefox". i open the interface and start typing it in. it will stop rejecting input after i type in "fir" and automatically jump to the first string that has "fir" in it. then i click the text box again and move the cursor the the end of the string. i add the letter "e" to "fir". it jumps to the first thing that has "fire" to it then refuses anymore input. if i make a typo and type in something like "fie" then notice my mistake and try to press backspace, it jumps to the text as soon as i press the letter 'e' and recognizes my backspace as wanting to go back a web page.
i guess my real question is if theres a way to go back to the old find as you type function. if not, any answer would be helpful.
