Open a Finder window. From the Finder menu bar click Go > Go to Folder
Type or copy paste the following:
Click Go then move the Cache.db file to the Trash.
Quit and relaunch Safari to test.
If that didn't help, with Safari open, press Command , (comma) top open Safari > Preferences then select the Extensions tab. Turn that OFF, quit and relaunch Safari to test.

I switched my homepage to a my.yahoo.com page that I setup and it stopped. Can't remember if it was an optional preference within yahoo that I changed years ago, but I recall going through this before and now doing it again with Mavericks updates.

Carolyn: Nope. That didn't work for me and I am having this problem.
I think one of the issues is that it is difficult to describe, but I think you did a good job stikygum.
Though, I don't WANT to switch my home page. I like it how it is.
and I don't want the cursor to jump down to Google (for me, its Google), when I begin to type a search thus rendering a few seconds of my life irrelevant to the task at-hand.
I'm a man on a mission and need my tools to work.
We can't be the only three.

I don't know of any, but Apple extensions gallery may have something.

OK I have searched for the answer on this and not found it either online - BUT
I have reset my homepage in preferences to https://www.google.co.uk (or .dom) and this has stopped the annoying thing happening! (NOTE the S - httpS://www.........
Hope that helps!

Thanks so much Digital Elf- this seems to help the problem!

Digital Elf nailed this one. Whatever your home page is, just type "s" to define it as https. In my case, http://www.yahoo.com became httpS://www.yahoo.com. No more jumping around. Thanks.
