    Use TAB instead, to go to the next field.

    This is how web browsers work.

    Thank you for your kind reply, however:

    Shouldn't you be mimicking email apps?
    Outlook does not send when you hit ENTER at the subject line.

    Suppose you write a complicated subject line, and then hit ENTER. Nothing should happen.

    The problem exists between the chair and keyboard.

    If you know that pressing a key produces undesired behavior, then stop pressing it.
