I have tested this issue on Windows 7 x64 with the latest Firefox release (48.0) and the latest Nightly (51.0a1-20160809030200) and manage to reproduce it as it follows:
Always in case 1 - With a single left-click in the taskbar icon if the address bar is not focused.
Sometimes in case 2 -  Right click in the taskbar icon, select "Open new tab".
Always in case 3 - Right click in the taskbar icon, select "Open new private window".

If Firefox is already opened (Normal or Private Mode) and I press 'Ctrl + N' or 'Ctrl + Shift + P' it opens a new window with the cursor focused on address bar.

If I right-click the icon in taskbar and choose "Open NEW WINDOW" it opens a new window in Normal Mode with the cursor focused on address bar.

If I right-click the icon in taskbar and choose "Open NEW TAB" or "Open new private window" it DOES NOT open with the cursor focused on address bar.

This is currently still an issue with Firefox 60.0.1 on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1225640 was the original bug that got closed due to inactivity - 3 years ago.

The problem mainly affects windows opened via the Taskbar's JumpList.
