When opening a new tab, why can't I automatically search?

When I open a new tab, I can't automatically start searching anymore.

Here's a video: https://www.loom.com/share/ebcc8685187a4e2284cf40b75f7e134e?sid=9b0a3db3-fcac-4bae-9ff9-cdbe2b8b955b

Now, I have to click into the search bar to type. That's annoying.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Kevin, I didn't watch the video, but wanted to mention this:

Some users reported in recent weeks that there was a survey active in the Firefox new tab page which captured the cursor from the address bar. Could you look around the page (or toolbar area) for anything like that? After you either respond to the survey or close it out, the new tab page/address bar behavior should return to normal.
