Missing feature from Firefox 2

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Toggle Full Screen (F11)
2. Open a new Tab (Ctrl + T)
3. Type a url and press enter
Actual Results:  
Nothing Happens.

Expected Results:  
Opened the url.

On Firefox 2 (tested on Win32 and Ubuntu Linux) when you open a new tab in fullscreen the address bar is automatically focused, just like when not in fullscreen, even if it was "invisible". On Firefox 3 the focus only works when not in fullscreen.

So, for example, if I want to open delicious in a new tab (I use keywords on bookmarks) I will type:
On Firefox 2: (Ctrl + t) delicious (enter)
On Firefox 2 (Full Screen): (Ctrl + t) delicious (enter)
On Firefox 3: (Ctrl + t) delicious (enter)
On Firefox 3 (FS): (Ctrl + t) (Alt + d) delicious (enter)

I had always put the address on the side of the Alt Menu, on Firefox 2, saves a lot of screen space.

Same problem here.
It should be solved the same way as when you press ctrl+k or ctrl+l, that the address bar gets focus when you open up a new tab.
