I have a website contains header and navigational menus.  The content of the page has form with many text fields.  When load a page, the page moves up and set focus to the first text field in the form.  Focus to first text field is very cool but it is NOT cool to move the page up where the first text field is at the top in the browser and not seeing the header and navigational menus.

Reproducible: Always
Please give a URL with the problem.

The site is under construction.  Here is a link that will show this problem:

I want to add that it does not do this in IE, Safari, Netscape... Only Firefox.

Thank you.

Tested also on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; it; rv: Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3

Firefox focus the first input text even if there is no need to scroll the page.

So, you are saying that I do not need to scroll the page up?  If so, there is nothing in my code to scroll it up.  Is this still a bug?

No, I confirm what you are saying. I don't think this is a bug, but it is not nice as you said

I see this in your JS: document.getElementById('BillFirstName').focus(); 

You should turn off Javascript in preferences and you will see that this is not a firefox bug.

Btw: I used to shop at Iwan Ries for my tobacco when I lived in Chicago. Great place.
