Can't Get Focus Back into the Search Games Text Field

Had to write my issue here:

First let me say I love this site. I love what the guys and gals here are trying to do; preserve ancient art.
Second, I had to type my issue as a comment since I could not add text (besides the issue title) in the large, white, text box explaining my issue or error further.

Which is ironic since the reason I am posting an issue has to do with not being able to get back into the Search Games text-field once I have started a Dos game and exited with Esc key.

Example: I load Civilization. I get the site pop-up, DosBox Online has control of your mouse. I play Civ (yay!).
I want to search for another game. I hit Escape key. I have control of my mouse again for my browser. I click in Search Games text-field and type - Nothing happens. I type more frantically. Nothing happens.
I notice Dos screen has gone to prompt and all my keystrokes are still locked in DosBox screen. There is no way out! Any ideas?
I use Mozilla Firefox v.50.1.0
Thanks

DOSBox does capture the keyboard and the only way to stop it capturing keystrokes in game is to exit to DOS and type exit, that will kill the emulator and allow you to type in the search box. No easy answer other than opening a new tab and doing it from there.
