Steps to reproduce

Edge browser doesn’t seem to respect autofocus any time input focus is on the browser chrome. Minimal repro: open index.html in Edge, click on Refresh button in Edge browser bar.

Expected: input has focus and I can start typing immediately.

Actual: focus remains on the Refresh button. If I type ENTER it refreshes the page again. I have to manually tab across the Edge chrome to get to my browser page.

Note: Edge works fine when I refresh via F5. Only the Refresh button has this problem.

After pressing the refresh button, focus is returned to the in input box. Is this the version of Microsoft Edge that you are using?
