Cursor Jumps Away from the Address Bar
When I start Firefox, the cursor jumps from the address bar to the search box; usuallly, this happens right after I type in WWW. I fix this by to the address bar; sometimes, it jumps back to the search box and I have to finally take my hands off the keyboard and use the mouse to click on the address bar. This is a frustrating time waster.
Every time Firefox opened

Does that still happen if you disable that Yahoo Toolbar extension?
I do NOT have any toolbar extensions running. Firefox shows them, but I disabled them since they made the system run very slowly.
Press the escape key to stop loading the page if you do not want to use that home page, but want to open another page via the location bar. Many websites use an onload event to set focus to a specific search field or input field.
I want Google to be my home page, but I don't want the onload focus event to take priority over a focus on the address bar. I think this should be amended
