if you open a new tab with Ctrl+T while the current focus is on the Ctrl+F searchbar, the Microsoft searchbar on the new tab will be selected which uses Bing by default instead of the address bar.
It's quite annoying as I have to select the address bar first before entering my url or search instead of simply opening a new tab and typing into the address bar.
The behavior is also inconsistent compared to opening a new tab without the searchbar.
Steps to reproduce
1. Ctrl+F and type something
2. Open a new tab with Ctrl+T
3. The focus is on the Microsoft new tab searchbar instead of the address bar
The same behavior when you open a new tab without the Ctrl + F searchbar selected:
The address bar has focus after opening a new tab.
Tested on Microsoft Edge Version 102.0.1245.44 (Official build) (64-bit)
Furthermore this issue does not exist in the current Chrome Build (Version 102.0.5005.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)).
Edit: It's still there on Version 106.0.1370.37 (Official build) (64-bit).

This still happens on Edge 112.0.1722.39 as well, on a fresh install of Windows 10. It's rather frustrating since I often go from a Ctrl+F search to a new tab to search, only for my input focus to be stolen by the tab contents instead.
