My Firefox (Windows 10) updated to 105.0 this morning. I have https://www.google.co.uk/ as my homepage and Firefox always used to focus on the Google webpage search bar on startup.

Now it focuses on the address bar instead (i.e. https://www.google.co.uk/ is selected). How can I make it focus on the webpage search bar on startup again instead?

I already found this thread from last year https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334131 and tried changing browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false but it didn't have any noticeable effect and the issue is still present.

Many thanks.

I have Windows 10 on my desktop computer. Yesterday Firefox updated to version 105. Now when I launch Firefox, and my HomePage loads, the address bar appears highlighted already (like as if I had clicked on it to type in a website). It was never like this before. I tried making Firefox the default homepage- still did it. I went back and set my favorite home page back in- still did it. I also re-started Firefox between each change. Is this a "glitch" with the last update? Is there any "about:config" setting that I need to change settings on? I'd appreciate any help, I know this is a minor problem but it is very frustrating! There have been many changes Firefox has made in the past that luckily I've been able to disable, but I cannot find anything to fix this one.

After opening a new window in Firefox, it automatically enters and selects everything in the address bar. this has been happening since I downloaded the latest update for Windows 10 (64-bit). I can't find any option to prevent this from happening. whatever is happening there, it's not useful to me.
