hi gabriel
when i enter a query in the search box and press enter, the cursor remains located in the search box (and thus the focus is on the search box)
i was wondering if you could remove the focus (or enter it as a user preference) since some of my kybd shortcuts are only enabled when not entering text
my workflow is such that i tend to "launch" a search in a new tab and return to the tab i was previously reading

This is not the intention, but I'm not seeing it. What browser/OS?

mac osx 10.6.4

safari and chromium (both are nightlies/dev)
don't really know if it's doing that on ffox (3.6 or 4.0)

I don't have OSX -- can anyone else verify?

Hi there, I am the developer of the DDG search bar. I was able to replicate your issue, and I just fixed it. Try re-downloading the extension and the bar should lose keyboard focus if you search and open something in a background tab or the same tab.
