    I want an extension that'll simply stop websites from automatically putting the cursor into a website's text field (like the website's search box or whatever). Please tell me if you know of an extension that does this.



    Here's the reasoning, if you care. When I go to some sites, it automatically and with no visible cue puts the cursor focus into the site's search field, then I hit the spacebar to page down like I always do except now it doesn't work because it just types a space character into their stupid text field, and then I close the tab and safari pops up a warning dialog that I've input text into the page and that I'll lose the text by closing the tab. Arg! So annoying.

    Holy cow, google is FAST!!! A couple of minutes after I posted this thread I did another google search because I'm still trying to find an extension that does this function, and google already included this 5-minute old thread in its search results!! Dude, that's amazing.
