if i open a bookmark (or the homepage) in a new tab, the form history doesnt pop up in the initially focused input field until i click somewhere else (and back again in that field). 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open bookmark/homepage (google for example) in a new tab
2.click into the already focused input field/press cursor down/or anything else which should open the form history

Actual Results:  
nothing happens

Expected Results:  
form history should pop up

this bug also occours in firefox2 (and i think in 1.5 too) on all of my windows PCs (win2k sp4/winxp sp2); tested in safe mode
This works for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b5pre) Gecko/2008032223 Minefield/3.0b5pre
Ok, I can reproduce it now, slight misunderstanding.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
We use focus events to attach the form fill controller. I guess the google search box doesn't receive a focus event when you just load it normally, since it starts off with focus?

Take a look at bug 359212. The instructions are a bit easier to understand.

Still a bug in FF3 and 3.1pre
Yes, I still see this in FF3 on Windows.

To consolidate, here's the reproducer steps I wrote in the other bug:

1. Go to http://www.google.com/ and enter something in the search field so you have some form history. You can skip this step if you already have any form history.

2. In the address bar, enter www.google.com and open it in a new tab using Alt+Enter.

3. Try to access form history in the search field. None is offered.

Would report it too.

1. Set google to your home page. 
2. Middle click (maybe with you mouse wheel) on you home page button.
3. A new tab will created loading google
4. Form/Search field history won't show last entered search words if you type in anything
