Find feature looses focus while typing a phrase, after typing the first space character.
The find feature now looses focus while I am entering a phrase. After entering the first word of a phrase and the space character, the find box will reposition itself to a possible result on the web page on EVERY CHARACTER and I have to reposition the cursor BACK to the find box to enter every subsequent character in the phrase I am searching for. Is there a way I can turn this useless (for me) *feature* off?
I used to be able to key the phrase I was looking for, and the box would turn red as I typed if the phrase did not exist. I would really appreciate being able to do this again. It now seems that Firefox 'jumps the gun' to find the phrase before I have completed typing it in.
hello, can you try to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once? if not, maybe one of your addons is interfering here...
- If you have many extensions then first enable half of the extensions to test which half has the problem.
- Continue to divide the bad half that still has the issue until you find which one is causing it.
