I'll copy what Gijs said in bug 1400401, because I agree:

Hitting esc used to remove focus from the urlbar so that you could do things
like "hit spacebar to scroll the page".

It doesn't do this for me on 56 either. Has this just been broken a long
time? When did it work? I'm not aware of it ever doing this, tbh...
