Description Joachim Backes 2006-07-19 07:12:50 EDT
Description of problem:

I'm running FC5 with firefox-

I found out that searching for string may be initiated by typing "/" instead of
"ctrl F".
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start firefox
2.search some text with "/"
3.wait some time after text is found 
Actual results:
Search-Text-window disappears

Expected results:
search text window should remain visible

Having the same problem with mozilla-FC5
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-07-18 13:31:41 EDT
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.

Actually, this is really NOTABUG, this works as expected. Search hides to avoid
mistakenly typed slashes.
