When a window is open and File->Open Location... is invoked (either via the menu or the keyboard) focus is given to the address bar.

When no window is open and this command is invoked, a new window opens and shows the "Open Web Location" dialog. It seems to me that open location should behave in this context in exactly the same way as the new window command.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Close all windows
2. Invoke File->Open Location...
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Issue still exists. 

1. Launch FF
2. File->Open Location... 
3. note result
4. Close window
5. File->Open Location...
6. Note different result.
And does this problem still occur if you make a new firefox profile?

No, making a new profile seems to fix it.
If it works in a new profile then the strange behaviour you see it probably due to an extension (or maybe firefox setting). You should try disabling your extensions one by one until the problem goes away, and then let us know what the cause was if you could.

Looks like Firebug 1.0.5 is triggering it.
OK because this is caused by a regression and is not Firefox's default behaviour, I am resolving this bug as INVALID. You need to email the extension author and get them to have a look at the problem. Thanks for the troubleshooting!
