Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set start page to something with an input field (http://google.com). 2. Open a new browser window. 3. In the new window, focus the address bar and start typing an URL into it. Actual Results: While typing the URL, the start page finished loading and the keyboard focus was transferred to the google search fiels, where the rest of my URL ended up because I wasn't looking and continued to type. Still not looking, I pressed enter and performed a google search on a partial url. The partial url in the address bar was replaced as the search results loaded and was lost. Expected Results: Keyboard focus remains in the address bar, where I'm busily entering an url. This doesn't really have anything to do with the start page or new windows, it's just that those are the elements that usually combine to trigger the bug. It's common to quickly press ctrl-n, ctrl-l, and start typing an url. The bug forces you to slow down or change start pages.
