Occasionally address bar not focused when new tab is opened.

  • After upgrade to latest version, sometimes when I open new tab, the focus is not in address bar.

    I am using momentum extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/momentum/laookkfknpbbblfpciffpaejjkokdgca), so it might be related but before upgrade it was OK, it was always focused.

    I press CTRL+T new tab opens with "vivaldi://newtab" in address bar (it is set this way because I want to see the momentum content when opening new tab) and I see momentum content in the new empty tab and address bar is focused and the text is selected so I can just start typing address or search... everything OK.

    Except that sometimes with exactly the same steps the focus is lost and I have to click to address bar and select the text... It is slightly annoying.

    Here is my vivaldi version info:

    Isn't that expected?
    Momentum default install has input box on its newtab page. That thing steal focus.
    If that not steal focus before current Vivaldi version that might be a bug on Vivaldi.

    I don't know if that behavior is famous or what but any pages that have input box on it usually steal focus. Firefox newtab page is old good example.
