When I use <CTRL><SHIFT> L to get the "Open Web Location" there is no keyboard focus. The last entry is hilighted but I cannot get keyboard focus to type anything without actually clicking on any active widget. Then <TAB> will let me change what the keyboard is focused on. This is *very* annoying as I was keeping to the keyboard when using the keyboard accelerator to open the dialog. Being keen to keep my hands on the keyboard, this has stopped me from using nightly for a while. This happens on the "Open or Save" dialog too. It doesn't happen on 0.9.5 but has done so on the nightly (repeated with 200111521) for quite some time.
Works for me, Craig, 0.9.5 and 2001111521. Some details might be useful here. What window manager and focus strategy do you use? Did you try it with a fresh profile?
I did this: % cd ~/ % mv .mozilla .mozilla.RENAMED $ /usr/local/mozilla-2001-11-15-21-trunk/mozilla and the first time I hit <CTRL><SHIFT>L I could type into the (empty) text field, no problem. However, as soon as I had opened one new browser tab using this "strategy" then subsequent times the last URL I've opened is prefilled in the URL text field, it's hilighted but the widget has no keyboard focus. I'm using Ximian GNOME + sawfish under RH 7.1 with click-to-focus and focus granted to new windows and windows get focus even when they haven't asked for it (these are all sawfish focus settings).
The wonders of detailed instructions! It is true, I fail miserably, the popup window does not get focus. ---> NEW
Diego, don't forget to "reassign bug to owner and QA contact" :) (i make that mistake all the time). Reassigning.
