how to set focus of cursor to Web Page search box when opening a new tab

I have been searching the internet changing about:config settings, and sifting through files for the past two day. But now I am totally at a loss what to do next. I'm hoping someone can help me find the original help article or tell me what setting I need to adjust to fix my problem. I have Firefox 45.0, Installed with the New Tab Homepage add-on. I use Bing as my Homepage and my web search provider. I am running windows 10.

My problem is: When I add a new tab, The new tab opens to my Homepage (Bing) and the cursor appears at the top of the page in Firefox's address/location/url bar. It just drives me crazy, because I can't just start typing my search string in Bing's search box. i have to click in Bing's search box before I can start typing in the box. There is probably a keyboard short cut I can use, but a keyboard short cut is not what I'm looking for.

When I first open Firefox, Bing appears and the cursor appears in Bing's Search Box (located in the middle of the page). But when I add a tab the cursors focus shift the to the new tab, and appears in the Address/location/url bar.

About 6 months ago I found an article that explained how to change a setting in the about:config area which would make the cursor move to the Bing's search box when a new tab was started. I used the information in the article to set up my laptop and home computer. It worked great. Anytime I opened a new tab the cursor would move straight to the webpage's search box.

Recently, I had to refresh Firefox on my desktop computer. After refreshing, the cursor will no longer move to the Homepage search box automatically. The cursors will only appear in the URL/address bar at the top of the page and it only moves to the homepage search box when I click in the box.

I forgot what line I had changed in about:config to get the cursor to go to the Bing's web page search box when a new tab is opened. I compared the config setting on my desktop and the laptop but I can't find anything that is set up differently.

If anyone knows what setting I need to adjust in about:config to get the cursor to go to the Homepage Websites search box, when a new tab is opened, I would appreciate it!!

I am using the Firefox Developer Edition which has a very nice Responsive Design View option. When in that mode there is an option to take a screenshot of the currently resized website.

I am wondering if there is maybe a setting somewhere that would allow to take a full page screenshot, instead of only getting the visible part?

I think that would be really handy, many times we need the whole resized design/page to show to the clients, at least from my experience.

Since the last week of March 2016, weather.com stopped working. All I get is a single window with most of the banner blacked out. Selecting from the drop downs bring mostly empty screens or, in the case of Today's forecast, Page not found. I updated to El Capitan hoping that would solve the issue. No luck. I'm at Firefox 45.0.1 which says it's up to date. What happened?

I want to create a shortcut to a particular website on my Windows 7 desktop. I am using Firefox 45.0.1. The usual solution of dragging the icon left of the address bar to the desktop doesn't work. It just attempts to move the browser window to that location. I've tried this numerous times on different computers. Neither does the CTRL-S solution work as suggested by question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/961873. It just creates a folder on the desktop, not a short-cut.

Does someone have a suggestion that does work for Windows 7?

I want to be able to set the search engine used by the search bar to a country-specific one, which may not be the country that I'm in. Normally I use google.com.au and bing.com.au. If I'm in France on holiday, I still want to search using google.com.au and bing.com.au rather than letting Google auto-detect that I'm in France and turn everything into French. How can I manually set the URL used for the search engine to force it to use the Australia-specific one all the time, no matter where I am?

A similar situation occurs if I'm using a VPN; just because the VPN says that I'm in Germany doesn't mean that I want German results. Just give me google.com.au and bing.com.au that return Australian results no matter where I'm located!

In Chrome it's easy (because you can just modify the search string to add ".au" to the end), but I haven't found a way to do it in Firefox.

I make use of an application that allows me to open a website in a frame within a tab. As long as i click on a link that let's me stay on that webpage the site stay's within the frame. But if the link revers to another website/url i get a new tab instead of the website being opened within the frame.
