  1. Start Nightly with --kiosk command line parameter.
  2. Note the top edge of the screen.

The expanded Megabar can be seen intruding into the page.

The address bar being focused in the first place seems like a kiosk mode bug.

No longer blocks: urlbar-update-1
Component: Address Bar → General
Summary: Expanded Megabar intrudes on top edge of screen in kiosk mode → Address bar is focused on stratup in kiosk mode

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: I imagine this is a big enough flaw to block kiosk mode shipping.

Blocks: 158968

There's a separate bug to prevent focus from going to chrome in fullscreen/kiosk mode, but the reason this isn't a blocker is because kiosk mode isn't typically used without setting a homepage as well.

If a user has gotten to the new tab page, they can break out of the kiosk mode (settings in the upper right).

Summary: Address bar is focused on stratup in kiosk mode → Address bar is focused on startup in kiosk mode

Megabar is not activated in 71 so this shouldn't block shipping --kiosk in 71, untracking for 71.

The recent megabar updates may have fixed that on 72, bogdan could your team check if this bug is still valid with the megabar activated? Thanks
