Description of problem:

I found out that searching for string may be initiated by typing "/" instead of
But when searching by "/", the input field with the search text disappears
automatically after some seconds. This is not the case when searching by "Ctrl F".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.search some text with "/"
3.wait some time after text is found
search text window should remain visible
Having the same problem with mozilla-FC5
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
The same problem happens in F7 with firefox-22.214.171.124-2.fc7.
Actually, this is really NOTABUG, this works as expected. Search hides to avoid
mistakenly typed slashes.
