Search and replace is too slow
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Expected behavior:

Press Command-F and immediately start typing what I want (the browser) to find. It works.

Actual results:

Press Command-F and immediately starting typing what I want (the browser) to find. VisualEditor's search-and-replace opens up halfway through the word I'm typing. I get the first half of the word stuck in the article, and the second half in the search tool.
