Firefox for Android

Steps to reproduce:

In Firefox Mobile 38.0.5 on Android 4.1, using an external bluetooth keyboard, i hit CTRL+Tab and a new browser tab opens. I begin to type the URL.

Actual results:

As the focus is on the first of the top sites, nothing happens.

Expected results:

The focus should have been on the address bar (it is in firefox desktop), the URL should have been entered in the address bar.
apologies. it is android 4.4.2, not 4.1 as originally stated.

The Tabs.LOADURL_START_EDITING flag added for bug 1413739 means that this can be done now with minimal further effort.
