When I use "Favorites" to load a page, the cursor stays up in the address bar.  Some of these pages are login pages that put the cursor into the "Enter ID" field on page load.  It works fine if I paste the URL into the address bar, but not when I try and get there from the Favorites menu.

From the favorites memu/address bar: I tried tabbing into the page, and first have to tab through the controls at the top (undesirable), then when I get to the page it skips over the field that was supposed to get the focus, acting like I was already there, and tabs straight into the second field.  I can then back-tab (shift-tab) into the right field, or I can tab all the way through the page, through the controls at the top, and on this second pass into the page it will tab into the correct field.

Any suggestions?  The ideal would be to click on a favorite and land in the field with the focus without additional clicks or keys.  Second best would be a hotkey to get from the address bar into the field with the focus.

Thanks for any help-
