If you open a new browser window with CTRL-N or File->New->Navigator Window, the
URL bar has focus, and you can type in it, but you can't move the cursor around.
This is very irritating.

Clicking on the URL bar has no effect, nor does pressing CTRL-L. To be able to
move the again you first have to click in the content area and then click in the
URL bar again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure Mozilla is set to load a blank page when opening new windows
2. Press CTRL-N
3. Type a few characters
4. Press left arrow key
Actual Results:  
Cursor does not move.

Expected Results:  
Cursor should move.

If I remember right, this works on Windows.

This might be a regression from bug 197671. CC'ing jag and Ian Neal.

This bug doesn't show in 1.3 but is showing by BuildID 2003041609 and as far as
I can see it is nothing to do with bug 197671.
It also happens if you set the navigator startup page to be blank.

When clicking on a link that opens a new window, the cursor is in the URL field.
 Very irritating if you want to scroll with your keyboard.
