    I am having a problem with Firefox 1.5 since upgrading to this version.
    At least once a day, a viewed webpage will suddenly go into FIND mode
    when I attempt to enter text into a form.

    The program will not allow you to get out of the FIND mode either. I
    did however find a way to make it leave the find mode by going up to
    the top of the screen, selecting help, then help contents. When the
    new help window pops up, Firefox leaves the FIND mode. I have found no
    other way to make it stop doing this.

    I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem.

  2. Tools>>Options>>Advanced

    On the General tab, uncheck Begin finding when you begin typing.

    If you want to leave this function enabled, just be very sure that you
    actually have your insertion point in the form field before you beging
    to type.
