Hello, there's something about new tabs that's been annoying me for a while now.

Whenever I open a new tab to search either with Ctrl+N or"+" icon, I have to manually click on the search bar, or do ctrl + L. I don't know if this has always been the case, but I often find myself opening a new tab, entering the query, and then realizing that the search bar wasn't selected and then begrudgingly having to re-enter the query.

I wonder if there's a setting in about:config that enables the search bar to always be selected whenever I open a new tab; if so, please let me know.

Thanks for your time!
