tab group set as home, form focuses on one of the hidden tabs instead of visible tab
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 I have a set of tabs configured as my home group; my webmail is the first (visible tab) and Google is the second or third tab. When I open Mozilla and start to type without clicking into the password blank first, the typed test (my password) always goes into the Google search blank on one of the hidden tabs. Seems like the forms focus should remain on the page/tab that is in front. I think I've seen this on both PC and Mac platforms, though I normally use Mac. The behavior has been consistent through the last several revisions of Mozilla. Great browser, by the way! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set my webmail (http://mphoffice.dns2go.com:3000) as primary tab and Google as secondary tab; set tab group as default home 2. Close and open Mozilla. 3. Start typing password without clicking into webmail password blank. Typed text will actually appear in the Google search blank on the second, hidden tab. Actual Results: see step 3 above Expected Results: Mozilla autofills my username into the webmail user blank. If it is going to allow me to type into a form without clicking in a blank first, I would expect it to focus on the form on front (visible) tab - either the username or password blank. Instead my password gets entered as plain, readable text into the hidden Google search blank on the second tab. Thanks!!
