    Description

      With Jenkins 2.289.2 creating a new job from another job is annoying (using Firefox).

      If I start typing in the "Copy From" box, it quickly jumps to the top "new name" box messing up my type. Then I have to delete the mistake and go back to the box I want to type in. This can happen more than once sometimes and then finally I get the focus to type in the box. I don't get why this would happen. I should not have to type the new name first.

      Typically, I want to find a job using the type ahead feature in the from box to see existing jobs. Then I cut and paste the name to new name where I will then change the name (such as ProjABuild5 to ProjBBuild5). And then I have to de-select the "Add to view" but that would be a separate issue I guess (why is that always defaulted on?).

      While this is minor, it sure is annoying.

            Thanks for the report. I see the same behavior in Google Chrome with 2.303.1 and with Jenkins 2.277.4.

            If I leave the "Item name" field empty and start typing in the "Copy from" field, after a few characters the focus shifts from the "Copy from" field to the item name field. The workaround is to enter a non-empty string in the item name field, then use the type ahead that is available in the "Copy from" field to complete it, then return to the item name field to enter the final desired name.
