I've noticed a change when I launch my IE to the Comcast site. You now have it set the page cursor into the Search the Web: location on your site instead of IE's Address bar. I HATE this! Please change it back to the way it was! Will you do this? Is there anyone else who's noticed and doesn't like it either?
I'm really wondering why Comcast has to "position" my cursor for me. I usually try to put the address I want in my own address bar, and it ends up in their search box! I am more than able to put my cursor where I want it!!! Please stop controlling my web surfing. Change the page back.

My home page link includes my username and password, so opening it automatically signs me in. And yes, the cursor is in the "Search the web" box, but then that is also the first dialog box on the page. I have a feeling that the cursor would be in whatever data-entry box happens to be first on the page.
That said I do find it kind of funny to have that search function there, on that page, since just about everyone with a computer already has chosen their search engine of choice and there's no hint about what search engine Comcast is using.
I don't believe I've ever seen any webpage that positions the cursor in the IE address bar. I'm not sure that's even possible.
A web page can position the cursor anywhere on itself, and in the case of the Comcast portal, that should be the sign-in box. After you've signed in, there's no "best place" to put the cursor. In fact, just about the only data-entry window, after you've signed in is the "search the web" box, so I don't know where else the cursor could be positioned. Would you rather have the cursor positioned in the "Get the weather for" box?
