If the design of a webpage changes significantly and VoiceOver can’t locate a web spot that previously existed on the page, it creates a new one that closely matches the original one.

To set an option to have the VoiceOver cursor focused on the sweet spot when a webpage opens, open VoiceOver Utility (press VO-F8 when VoiceOver is on), click the Web category, then click the Page Loading pane.
