Calibre Search: Title/Author/Series

I am running Calibre 1.6 (64bit)
Just recently (not sure which version it happened in) I now find that after a search when I clear the search from the search bar and hit GO to return to the start of the database, it goes to the book at the top of the search list. It always did return to book 1 in the library before.
It must be a setting that I have unknowingly altered.
How can I get Calibre the return to the 1st book in the library?

hit ctrl/home

I would have thought the book that was current before the clear search would remain as the current book - might depend on how you clear search - I press Esc

Addendum : just remembered I use View Manager, so it may make a difference - but ctrl/home should make first book current

I think both of BR's answer are correct for vanilla Calibre operation.

Clearing a search, usually leave focus on the LAST recent selected record(s)

Yes, BetterRed is correct but before the recent versions of Calibre by clearing the search area and hitting "Go" it returned to book 1

That was incorrect operation that crept in @ calibre 1.x that was fixed

Focus now remains at the last selected book (as it did in times past) when possible.
