How to disable the URL bar from receiving focus after a page click

When I click on any link within a webpage, the new webpage will load up. I start hitting the UP and DOWN arrows to start scrolling through the page. But Firefox has stolen the focus from the webpage and given it to the URL bar. So I start to see URL history popup in a drop down list from above.

This is very annoying.

Is there a way for the URL address bar from stealing the focus, and just display the current page's URL?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
