Firefox 12 is broken (so what’s new?)

Am I the only one who’s noticed that when you open a web page in Firefox 12, it jumps down to display the first button on the page, regardless of where it may be? This makes many web forums useless because they have buttons at the bottom of the page, so you have to scroll all the way back up to read the damn page you wanted to read.

I don’t know what idiot came up with this idea, but I do know have to fix it.

  1. Go to about:config using the address bar. WordPress won’t let me put a link to about:config here.
  2. Search for browser.autofocus.
  3. Set it to false.
  4. Return to sane browser behaviour.

Firefox developers seem to have gone full metal retard since Firefox 3.6. I’m not sure how much longer I can continue to use it before I have to switch to something else.
