Hitting space bar in search field results in 'page down'


Hitting the space bar inside a search box (e.g. when searching for packages) will result in the entire page being shifted as if you hit page-down. This would make sense if the cursor is not blinking in the search bar, similar to what occurs when using Chrome normally; however, when the cursor is in the search bar this behavior is unnecessary - borderline aggravating.

Is there a way to turn this feature off, or make Atom more responsive to whether the cursor is in the search bar or not?
