Cursor Starts in URL Field Instead of Google Search Box in Firefox 4

If you recently upgraded from Firefox 3 to Firefox 4 (and now, possibly even 5), you may have noticed that the cursor starts out on the address bar rather than in Google's home page search box.  This means that if you want to take advantage of Google Instant Search, you need to click or hit CTRL+K to move it to Firefox's Search Bar or click into the middle of the web browser window to move the cursor into Google's search box.

An easy way to remedy this problem is to install NewTabURL and, after installing it, uncheck the "select location bar after loading the new tab" box.
