Wwhen I try to type in the field in the middle of my home page (Chrome in Firefox) why does it instantly transfer mt typing to the address bar. Also, why does the browser name appear in the address bar when I start to type? I know what browser I'm using. It's all very, very annoying. How can I stop all this stuff happening?

You can turn it off by entering about:config in the URL bar and switching browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false.
