If not specified (by JavaScript or otherwise), an option to force input focus to be at the first field of a form (so long as the form's first input field is visible).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit
2. Type

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
The input field at the very top should have had focus, allowing the user to type in without clicking (or tabbing to) the field.

Not sure if guessing which input on a page should have focus is the right thing to do.  Maybe contacting alexa and suggesting them to set the focus to that field is the better option here.

It's not just Alexa -- that was an example to illustrate the site.


The input field beside the "Find" button (at the top of the page) should get initial focus.

If it's an *option* then people can enable it as they see fit. It could be added to Firefox, or we could try and convince people one at a time (Slashdot, Facebook, BugZilla,, Alexa, and Microsoft to name a few) to make sure that the first form field (usually a search box) on their page gets focus.
