 Replying to [comment:1 mikeperry]:
 > the cursor focus on the new tab is the startpage search bar

 The about:tor page also uses javascript -- the jquery on this page also
 sets the `.focus` onto the startpage input box.  Deleting line 34 of
 `src/chrome/content/aboutTor/aboutTor.xhtml` will solve the focus issue.
 This is all legacy torbutton code from early 2013 (commit

 An initial step would be to replace the content of aboutTor with the
 content of the about:newtab page.
