When I'm trying to build a search in the smart bar, I sometimes refer to other apps for my search terms, and switch to them (using Command-Tab on OS X) to look at them. Unfortunately, every time I do this, Firefox throws out my cursor position in the smartbar and re-selects the entire typed content to date. At least three times out of five, I forgot to re-locate the cursor and wiped out my entire query. Please don't do this.
Nightly, fresh profile no addons etc.
(Parity: This problem does not occur in Chrome+Safari)
Component: General → Location Bar
Summary: Smart bar cursor position is discarded when I alt-tab away from Firefox for less than a second → Location bar shouldn't change/lose selection if the window loses and regains focus, even if browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll is true
