When my home page loads (google) I can not type directly in the search box without first selecting it. Major pain and it only happens with fire fox. How do I fix this. Thank you

Hi mikepalma.ca, does your CA refer to Canada or California??

Usually Firefox will put the cursor into the page on your home page -- the first tab in a new window -- and will put the cursor in the address bar on a new tab -- the second and subsequent tabs in a window. If yours won't go into the home page, how are you setting that -- are you using the Custom URLs setting:

One Firefox puts the cursor in the page, the next action is that a script in the page moves it into the search box. If that second step isn't happening, perhaps something is blocking that script from running normally?
