This does not happen with all URLs, only some. 1. On this Bugzilla page click in the location bar, it will turn blue 2. Click Reload 3. Click (or right-click) in the location bar Result: it will not select, unless you triple-click. Expected result: location bar should turn blue, so that I can paste a URL quickly without left-clicking on the favicon first. This is not a recent regression (also 1.0.7 is affected), although I don't see it in Seamonkey trunk: after a reload the location bar is still selected there. I can also reproduce this with a URL like http://forums.mozillazine.org/ but not with http://www.google.com/
Regression between 2004110107 and 2004110411: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?module=PhoenixTinderbox&date=explicit&mindate=2004-11-01+06%3A00&maxdate=2004-11-04+12%3A00
The "problem" is that the location bar remains focused after reload. You can't reproduce it on Google because the page grab the focuse to the input.
Can't reproduce the problem neither in Internet Explorer nor in Opera.
This works for me now, on this page.
