The problem only happens when on a "new tab" page. If you focus the address bar for a tab that already loaded a webpage, the issue doesn’t happen. I think what happens is that pressing down transfers focus to the new tab page, but it shouldn’t do, because the new tab page in incognito mode doesn’t have any content that the user may want to interact with with a keyboard.
