User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0

Steps to reproduce:

As seen on Twitter: https://twitter.com/JackAWatt/status/1088885812610125825

  1. Open at least two tabs in Firefox
  2. enter some text in awesomebar or separate search box
  3. right click on tab, select move tab > move to new window (or tear the tab out of the window into a new tab)

OR

  1. drag tab into an existing window

Actual results:

The text entered in step 2 is lost, focus is no longer in the awesomebar or search box.

Expected results:

Focus stays within the awesomebar or search box, entered text is not lost. Ideally, the cursor position would also be retained.
