Is it possible to choose where GUI control focus goes when using the forum jump?

When you use the forum jump control to go to a new forum the focus (the ‘active’ control, usually in dialog boxes the thing with the faint dotted line round it) remains on that control.

I am a heavy user of the mouse wheel to browse pages. But with the control being on the forum jump the mousewheel just scrolls through it’s options, no matter where the curser is. So I have to click somewhere that is not a link to remove focus from the control before I can scroll the page.

Any way to automatically move focus somewhere else after the forum jump is used? Or is that too low level programming for the admins? (no offence)
