User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 pre 1.4alpha Mozilla would open up a blank page with the cursor focus in the address bar, making it very easy for one to launch a new window and then just start typing in the desired new URL. With 1.4a, now one gets a copy of the default homepage, with the focus somewhere else. If we can't suppress the homepage load, could we at least get the focus back into the URL area with the current address highlight for easy type-over (is that a term?)? Doesn't matter if "find while you type" is turned off or on. Maybe some people would rather have this work this way, but I couldn't find reference to any reported bugs fixing this this in 1.4a. Thanks Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch browser 2. Hit Ctrl-T to open new tab 3. Try to type in new URL without clicking into the Address area. Actual Results: Nothing. Doesn't perform like it used to. Expected Results: Have cursor/typing focus revert back to the address bar, with address highlighted for easy type-over.
