Closed Bug 1449860 Opened 2 years ago Closed 2 years ago

When going home on a webpage (alt + home), neither the search field nor the address bar are focused. This is inconsistent with opening a new page (ctrl + T) where the address bar is instantly focused.

I have tested this issue on latest Nightly, Beta and Fx Release builds. I`m able to reproduce it. When pressing Alt + Home buttons, I`m navigated to home page but the address bar nor the search field is focused. When opening a new tab with Ctrl + T the address bar/search is focused.

I tested this on Windows 10, and Ubuntu 16.04 VM with beta 62.0b7, and it is verified as fixed.

Alt+Home opens the home page and focuses the address bar.
