I've had that issue on HTML games before. is an example for me.

If the game in question uses / or ' as a control...
/ is the shortcut to start find as you type. ' is the same, but only for links. Seamonkey hears you call out for search, and it obeys. I don't know how to avoid this.

If it isn't one of those two keys, you're in luck. My bet is that "find automatically when typing" is enabled, and that can be disabled in edit/preferences. Go to advanced, find as you type, and disable "find automatically when typing within a web page".
