I don't know :-) Nobody ever managed to block FAYT, seen from here.

To set FAYT to work automatically, add
user_pref(accessibility.typeaheadfind.autostart, true);
in your user.js
(or use about:config).

OK, I added return false; to the keybindings and successfully
repressed FAYT in FF on WinVista, but I don't know if that works in
all gecko browsers.

Gecko is Gecko :-)
I checked your page with Fx 2 and the nightly builds of both Camino  
and Minefield: Fayt is not triggered.
Camino 1.5 appears not to 'get' it here, Fayt is triggered anyway.  
I'll check if there is a known issue/limitation around that. But if I  
were you, I wouldn't worry about it.


There are a few known bugs with keybindings in current nightlies on  
Mac, but those should be fixed by the time Gecko 1.9 is released.  
None affected your test page.

yum! that is excellent - FF2 on my mac loved it, but Safari 3 didn't
respond to keyboard commands :-(

 I just created a layout tool: http://lab.christianmontoya.com/construct/

If I could get some tests on older browsers and other operating
systems, that would be great. Thanks in advance!


Gecko nightly builds (Camino  Minefield) seem to do what you expect.
Of course, using 'J', 'K', 'L' triggers FAYT (Find as you type) when  
set to start automatically. Most people reasonably versed in the use  
of Gecko browsers have it set that way.


Safari 3 doesn't get your keyboard input.

OS X 10.4.11.

OK, I expected that. From what I know, jQuery keyboard events don't
work in Safari. As for FAYT, darn, that's good to know.

I'll probably add a virtual button panel to get around this issue,
but it's nice to at least be able to map keys in a couple browsers. Is
there any way at all to prevent the FAYT behavior? If I apply return
false, will that work?
