When opening Hotmail from http://www.hotmail.com/ and also opening eBay from
http://www.ebay.com/ Hotmail loads and displays properly.  Focus moves to the
username field after it is automatically populated and highlighted.  eBay, in
inactive tab window, takes focus to one it's search fields

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open http://www.hotmail.com/
2. Open new tab, load http://www.ebay.com/  (I have both on bookmarks toolbar)
3. Switch back to Hotmail tab, email address field has been automatically
populated with my email address and highlighted; focus moves to the eBay tab's
"what are you looking for" search box next to the "find it" button.



Expected Results:  
Focus should be kept in the active window or tab.

The main reason I report this is that it could be a potential security risk, but
I doubt it's very serious.  Sometimes, I've already manually moved focus to the
password field on the Hotmail page, and the eBay page will take focus to it's
search field.  I type my password and press enter.  If I then switch to the ebay
tab, I can see if they have any auctions with my password in the title...
Also, I'm not using any software that would have caused this focus problem.
