let us suppose that one is typing into a text input field in a web form, one for which the type attribute is, oh, say, 'password.' let us further suppose that the string that one is typing into this text input field contains a character that firefox thinks is a shortcut for 'i want to find the following text on this page.' now, should firefox interpret that shortcut key, seeing as how it's being typed into an input box? and should firefox interpret the shortcut key by bringing up the find toolbar at the bottom of the page and letting one type the rest of the password into that box where it is revealed in all its plain-text glory to any onlookers? ...sure, what the hell! layman's hate today, --sabrina.
