DESCRIPTION When the Google search engine main page finishes loading, it takes the keyboard input focus. This is annoying, because I sometimes open and start using another page before Google has finished loading, and half-way thru typing in the second page, my input starts being entered in Google. STEPS TO REPRODUCE 1. Open <http://www.google.com/> in a browser tab 2. Open a new tab and enter a new web page address that takes keyboard input (such as <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/"> and begin typing in that field NOTES If you are on a fast connection, you may need to create some heavy network load so that you can open the second page and begin typing there before Google finishes loading. EXPECTED BEHAVIOR Input focus remains where it is (in the second tab). NOTES I suspect this is a problem with Mozilla's tabs not behaving like pages, but someone might see this differently. In any case, I doubt we can get Google to change its approach. A workaround might be to stop pages on other tabs taking input focus. A solution might be for Mozilla to keep track of each tab's focused field, and for this field to be activated when that tab is activated. VERSION Observed in Mozilla 1.2.1 (Xft build), however I expect this issue applies to several builds and all platforms.
