Thank you
Find as you type has only ever been annoying by jerking the view around when I thought I was typing in a text box. I have NEVER intentionally used it, always accidentally. Good riddance.

Damn, this is bad news...

I use this feature all the time in SeaMonkey and don't like the way it behaves in Firefox.

Unfortunately I can't help but it's really a pity to have to remove this great feature!

Maybe someone could adapt the Firefox module to behave as SeaMonkey does...

type as you find is the only way i search in webpages. Very fast, no extra dialog - i'm gonna miss it. Hopefully somebody can provide this feature for final 2.0.

Find as you type is the single most useful feature of SeaMonkey as opposed to FF.

I considered switching to FF some years ago when it was all the hype, but this is essentially the reason I stuck with Mozilla/SeaMonkey.

I really hope it's back again (as we know it) by the next public release.

Type-ahead find in Firefox
csf, you can still use type-ahead find (Find As You Type) in Firefox. Enable it under Prefs -> Advanced -> General.

No "find as you type" feature ???
Well, sorry, I was eagerly waiting for the Seamonkey 2.0 beta, but without "/" launching find as you type, that would be as useless as having a browser without CTRL-N or CTRL-T.
Seriously, for sure, I don't grasp all the complexity that's behind FAYT, but even if its GUI is annoying, I'd much prefer to have Firefox's implementation instead of nothing...

Just my 2 cents

find as you type
I use Find as you type every day, it's one of the main features in SM.
3-4 news like that and no reason to use new releases of SM.

Would be very sad if it would disappear. I really like the feature and use it pretty often in my daily use.

Firefox did it right
I would love to see Firefox's integrated find and FAYT feature in SeaMonkey.
