When opening new tab, text placement defaults to address bar, any way to change it to the new page (like Google)?

When I click on the plus for a new tab, which automatically takes me to google.com so fine, but the cursor is in the address bar. It looks like the cursor is in the google search field, but it isn't.

When I click "home" the cursor defaults to the search field, which I feel is proper. Is there a way to have FF not default to the address bar for text input when opening a new tab?

I doubt it. Google controls both their search and their browser and they integrate the features. But you can use "Ctrl+K" to place your cursor on Search Bar" within your Firefox toolbars. Pressing the TAB key is pretty much a waste of time since there are a lot of links before you get to the input area.

There might be an extension, if it bothers others, but I can't see a valid trade-off to justify using an extension for something that seems trivial to me.
