User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

As you don't open a tab for nothing.
Plus if you do want nothing in that tab you just hit ESC to undo the implied ctrl-L

Reproducible: Always
I agree with this.  If the navigation toolbar is hidden and someone opens a new window or a new tab, they should be automatically prompted with the navigation dialog.  9 times out of 10, if the user is not going to open a new window or tab and not want to browse somewhere.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Hide navigation toolbar: View > Toolbars > Uncheck Navitation Toolbar
2. ctrl+t or ctrl+n

Actual results:
A new tab/window is displayed with no navigation dialog.  The user has to press ctrl+l to open said dialog.

Expected results:
When the navigation toolbar is hidden and a new window/tab is opened, the user should be prompted with the navigation dialog automatically.

Reproducible: Always

This should be a preference, because by default on Linux builds, button 3 of the pointing device means "load the URL from clipboard", and there are people who like that.
