When opening new tab I am directed to Google, but the cursor stays in the address bar. Anyway to automatically move the cursor to the google search bar?
Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com. In the past my cursor automatically went to the search bar on that page when I open a new tab. After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.

Which extensions do you use?
A new tab opens by default as a blank tab (about:blank).
If that isn't the case then an extension has changed that behavior.
Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

It is best to set the home page and middle click the home button to open that page in a new tab rather than changing the browser.newtab.url pref to that page to avoid problem with the focus.
