Auto-scroll also changes focus since 2022.2.6

When looking at req/responses via Burp Proxy history with "Auto-scroll to match when text changes" the first match is not only auto-scrolled to but now also "auto-focused" on. So one extra click to get back to Burp Proxy history is now required. To quickly describe why this should be fixed/reverted: For example, sometimes (using Proxy > HTTP history) I look with "Auto-scroll to match ..." for things like (error|api_key|secret), which mostly return false positives. Now every false positive is focused on and to view the next req/resp a click is necessary - while I previously could just press the up/down key again (as focus remained on the req/resp in the HTTP history list).

Thanks for your message, Melker. I've discussed this with our Research team and they agree with your point. I'll follow up with the product team and get back to you.
