...bc it does to me. i dont think it ever did that b4. i dont remember.

yesterday i was posting a message in a forum and everytime i typed ' it would bring up the FIND toolbar and begin typing in it.

i did a fresh install of firefox today and now its not doing it (when typing something in a window). which is good/better. but it still does it when i click OUTSIDE of a typing window/box and do it.

' has the same effect as Ctrl + F



is this normal for firefox 1.0.6 ? :thumbsup:

I checked the shortcuts in FF Help, and it seems that "'" when you are not entering text is something they call "find as you type link."
Cheers,

Interesting...I always used control-f. For me, at times, even when typing it would bring up the find box with certain letters. Would get annoying and restarting firefox would fix it
