FIND BAR POPS UP WHEN TYPING RANDOM LETTERS

When viewing webpages on Firefox, typing any letter automatically brings up the "find" bar at the bottom of the screen. This has never happened before. I have been using a particular website on Firefox for years with shortcuts that allow me to hover my mouse over things on the webpage and press single letters to initiate an action/shortcut. Now, that feature doesn't work because now when I press a single letter trying to perform the short cut, the find bar pops up at the bottom of the screen, rendering my shortcuts useless for this webpage. This is happening on multiple machines and on any given website, not just the one i use with shortcuts. How do I disable the find bar popping up? Why is this feature happening now, was this in a new update? This does not happen in other browsers, it is Firefox specific.

Try disabling the Search for text when you start typing option in the Firefox preferences.

Hope this helps.

Wesley, that seems to be working. I tried toggling it on and off and going back and forth to the site/any site and found the result I wanted. Disabling that feature seems to be the solution I was looking for!!
