When clicking the extension icon or when using the keyboard shortcut (CTRL+SHIFT+Y) I would like the ‘Search Vault’ field to be automatically focused so you can start typing right away. Although it’s just a simple change, it would be a big QoL improvement.
For me this is already the default behavior. I am using the Google Chrome extension on Windows 10.
If it does not work for you this way you perhaps should mention some more details like OS, Bitwarden-app / extension, version, etc.
I’m using Waterfox, BW 1.49.1, on Win7. If it works for others then I guess it’s just me.
