[Solved]How to disable Firefox Quick find feature

Post#1 by wsteven » 17 Oct 2013, 09:42

Which is pretty annoying. Any key pressed on a page opens this quick find features, digging a bit around didn't give me a satisfying answers, such as :

Code: Select all

user_pref("searchkeys.disable.all", true);
Which isn't doing anything, I guess this is for an old version of firefox.
Anyone tried to do this?

Uncheck "Search for text when I start typing" in preferences > advanced tab
EDIT:
sorry, I didn't noticed that it is Kiosk-edition

Code: Select all

user_pref("accessibility.typeaheadfind", false);
Or simply removing the line should do the trick as false is the default value.
