You should be able to solve the problem by causing the
page you want to work with to open in a new window. For
example, when you are using search, write the search item
and instead of pressing enter, press shift enter. That
opens the results page in a new window. When you have
finished working with it, close the new window with alt f4.
You are now back on the page where you were and you should
be in exactly the same place you were because the page has
been opened all the time in another window and you did
nothing to change your position.
I can’t test that here because I don’t see the banner,
looking at the page from the United states, but whatever the
cause, this method should work around the problem.

where NVDA starts at
I apologise for not specifying the exact page. It is https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/
I notice it when I activate Groceries, which seems to change
the page but the address remains as https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/
I think it is exactly what Chris says, the EU's GDPR banner
seizing focus. If I search for an item and then add it to my
basket, then go back to the main Groceries page, the focus
jumps to the GDPR banner about cookies, which appears right
at the bottom of the page.
As I say, it's not a major hastle to jump back to the top of
the page or to press shift+e to jump to the previous search
field, it's just an annoyance to be taken down to that
cookie banner every time I have to go back to that page.
Anybody who also pays attention to the TAVIP blind computer
discussion group will also recall that Sainsbury's have
been messing around with their website, but they have been
listening to difficulties that TAVIP members have expressed,
which is good to hear.
