blank_newtab_page_search_in_focus.jpg

STR:
1. Open Firefox using a clean profile;
2. Navigate to about:newtab;
3. Switch the page to blank (gear icon);
4. Click on the URL bar and press "Tab" three times;
5. Enter any word/term/letter and press enter.

Expected Result:
The search bar cannot be focused when the page is blank.

Actual Result:
The search bar from the about:newtab page is selected and the search can be performed even if the page is blank.

Notes:
Reproducing on Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit and Mac OS X 10.9.5.
This issue is not a regression, it reproduces back to Firefox 31 when Search was introduced in the new tab page.
