1. Launch Fennec with a clean profile;
2. Swipe the content for the slides;
3. On the last panel tap on "Not right now".

Expected result:

Hi Sorina,

I wonder why would we expect the focus is on URL bar. Because whenever a new tab is created, we did not focus on URL bar. Also, if we focus on URL bar, the menu button is hidden, would it be expected when user dismiss Welcome screen and couldn't see the menu button?

We probably need UX input, what do you think :jalin?

When we are on the last slide from the Welcome screen the user has two options: "Sign in to sync" or "Not right now". So if the user don't want to log in with a Firefox account maybe that he/she wants to search for something? This behavior was implemented before, this is a regression. 
If is needed I can investigate more and search for a regression window. We can wait for :jalin response. Thanks!

Given this and the delay hearing back from UX, let's say we're not going to fix this in 58 or 59.
AFAIK, Jalin no longer works on Firefox for Android so removing the needinfo request.
Marking as fix-optional for 63

Re-triaging per https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1473195

Needinfo :susheel if you think this bug should be re-triaged.
Priority: P3 → P5
Marking fix-optional for 64. We could still take a patch in 65.
Summary: No focus on URL bar when Welcome screen is dismiss → No focus on URL bar when Welcome screen is dismissed

Since this is P5 and a longstanding issue we don't need to keep setting the flags here.
I'll remove the regression flag here and mark it as a good first bug.

Keywords: regression
Whiteboard: [good first bug]

Since this is listed as a good first bug and doesn't appear to be high importance, I'll work on taking care of this.

Based on the comments above, the idea is to focus on the address bar if the user declines to sign in and sync accounts. Please correct me if this isn't the case.
