Instance switcher behavior has changed. Why?

Earlier the instance switcher used to focus on the search by default, meaning that I could start typing right away to swap out a component. But with the latest update, Figma focuses on the folder/navigation by default, meaning that it requires one extra click to trigger the search. What was the reason behind changing this behavior?

It’s a minor issue, but gets annoying if you use swap components often.
