Don't focus to first filter when it's halfway down the page
I see the system is automatically focusing to the first filter on a search view. I don't remember this happening before; I think it's a new feature. It's great, and really useful when opening a search view, or when opening a dashboard with a search view at the top.
But I sometimes create dashboards with a search view at the bottom, so that I have the filters available when I want them but they're simultaneously out of the way when I don't want them. When I open these dashboards, what I want to see most of the time is the non-search view at the top. When the system focuses to the first filter, it scrolls all the way down to the bottom of the page. I have to scroll back up every time I open the dashboard.
I vote that the system doesn't focus to the first filter on a dashboard when the first view is not a search view. That enables me to configure the "first seen" area of the dashboard by putting the view I want people to see first in the first section of the dashboard.

So far we just disabled auto-focusing on view's filters.

Ah! Thanks for that. :-) I do like it for filters that are right at the top, especially text input boxes. I'd vote to keep it for that particular case, if it's possible.

Changed status to "Under Consideration". The autofocus code is ready, but requires more sophisticated logic for turning it on and off depending on the context.
