I am a Windows 7 user and my browser is Firefox 11. Lately I've been having this pain in the ass problem that seems to not get solved no matter where I go. So, here it goes.

I use key bindings to search pages much faster than clicking around. HOWEVER. When I am on pages like Google and have ALREADY entered my search query it continues to focus on the search box no matter what and continues to enter gibberish. Is there a way to disable this automatic focus on search bars so it has to WAIT for me to actually select it?

Please and thank you!

That would be Google Instant, try disabling that. I guess if you could find out how it was implemented (e.g. Javascript) you could block it from the browser side too... – Bob Apr 21 '12 at 16:21
Turning off Google Instant works for pages like Google but not others. I've heard about using Javascript however I do not know how to write Javascript. – 8bitkronik Apr 21 '12 at 16:49
