Build ID: 20150826185918

Steps to reproduce:

I can reproduce by following these steps:
1. Type some text in url/search bar
2. Change keyboard layout
3. Continue typing text

browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll is set to TRUE (if FALSE there is no bug; it seems like change of keyboard is also recognized as click)
OS: Ubuntu 14.04, which was in a few steps upgraded from 10.04
After resetting of firefox the bug was still present
Bug also is present with another key bindings to change layout (I tried Alt+Shift L and Ctrl L)

Actual results:

A piece of entered text remained in the bar. After changing of layout text is selected, then deleted while continue typing.

Expected results:

Text must not be selected after changing of layout and the whole entered string must remain at the end.
