[Affected versions]:
- 48.0a1 (2016-04-14)
- 47.0a2 (2016-04-14)
- 46.0b10 build1 (20160411042519)
- 45.0.2 build1 (20160407164938)

[Affected platforms]:
- Windows 10 x64
- Windows 7 x64
- Ubuntu 14.04 x86
- Mac OS X 10.10.5

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Launch Firefox.
2. Go to about:home
3. Click the URL bar in order to focus it, type a random word and then hit Enter. 
4. Inspect the search bar.

[Expected result]:
- The URL bar remains in focus until the search results are loaded.

[Actual result]:
- After step 3, the focus passes from URL bar to search bar while the search results are loading.

[Regression range]:
- This issue also reproduces on old Firefox builds, including 30.0 and 4.0, so I do not believe that it is a regression.
By search bar you mean the in-content input field, not the search bar in the toolbar, right? At least that's what I've observed in my testing gets the focus.

Yes, indeed, I mean the in-content input field, not the search bar in the toolbar. I`ve also created an screen recording of the issue, in order be more specific. Thanks!
