Steps to reproduce:

1. Open sites in two tabs
2. Put cursor in the address bar
3. Start editing the URL, select some characters
4. Ctrl-Tab to switch to another tab
5. Ctrl-Tab to switch back to the first tab

Actual results:

For step #5 the focus is in the address bar and *all* text is selected, making it hard to continue editing the URL. This is the result on Ubuntu Linux. Windows version has similar issue: the selection disappears and cursor is placed at the end of address bar regardless of its position in step #3.

Expected results:

For step #5 the focus is in the address bar and cursor and selection is in the same state as after step #3.
