sometimes ctrl-tab does bring the focus to the location bar.. when I click in the page, it always changes the tab and doesn't go to the location focus any longer. I'm having difficulty reproducing this.
works for me.
I'm going to submit to the WORKSFORME status.. I haven't seen this since the 0.3 stable release. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021022 Phoenix/0.3 This could be ctrl-tab functionality not existing when entering data into an input box, or some such. At any rate, it appears to have gone away.

I constantly get this using the Firebird 0.6.1 milestone build. I have it set up to open tabs in the background when ctrl+clicking a link. A lot of the time the current tab will lose focus when this happens. I've seen related bug reports when minimizing or switching the active window; keyboard shortcuts cease working properly when returning to firebird. But I get this when opening new tabs in the background, too. In such cases, I can usually click 3 or 4 links with no problem, and use the down arrows to scroll the web page while they're loading. But as soon as the first one is done loading, I have to click somewhere in the currently loaded webpage because apparently it loses focus. If I do not, scrolling doesn't work anymore, ctrl+w will not close the tab, and ctrl+tab moves focus up to the address bar instead of going to the next tab.
