Mozilla Firebird tip

In Mozilla Firebird. when using the find-as-you-type feature always go to the top of the page before you start typing. On a big page my browser hung for several seconds while doing the search.
So, hit the ‘Home’ key before you search!
For those who don’t know, start typing on this page, (try ‘ILUG’) and a link with the characters you type will be highlighted. Press ‘/’ and your search and it’ll match any text, not just links! If a link is highlighted, even partially, just press return to go to that link. It’s a wonderful feature!
