Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060719 Firefox/1.5.0.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060719 Firefox/1.5.0.5

After the 1.5.0.5 update, I can type into the address bar after loading for a second.  It then loses focus and I have to select it manually.  This is only in the first instance of a new process, all subsequent instances do not have this problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure the Firefox process is not running.
2. Launch Firefox and being typing.
Actual Results:  
I'm able to type in the address bar for a second, and then it loses focus.

Expected Results:  
The address bar should have kept the focus after Firefox finished loading.

It might be worth explaining that typing something has nothing to do with it losing focus, it is only an indication that the location bar has focus initially and then loses it.  In order to use Firefox under this condition, it is best to wait a few seconds when loading the first instance and doing CTRL+L.

Actually, it does happen with each new instance.  New tabs work from the beginning.

Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

-> Closing as incomplete because of missing feedback if this is still reproducible in the latest release (Firefox 2.0.0.4) or Trunk Build.
