I just want to mention explicitly that this is a regression from Firefox 2; you could hit ctrl+t and type URLs and hit enter just fine (even though you couldn't see the URL bar). This was a great boon to my netbook browsing productivity.
If you change browser.fullscreen.autohide to false, do you get the desired behaviour back? http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config
Hi Ria. That option does not give me that behavior back. It just doesn't hide the tab bar. The bug doesn't have to do with what is shown or not, but whether the keyboard input goes to the hidden location bar or not and allows you to then visit websites. Thanks though!
Just mentionning that it is still present in last Minefield 3.2 build.
Hi, Just to confirm, this is reproduceable under FF3.x on Linux. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/2009032608 Firefox/3.0.8. Slackware 12.1 It is highly annoying, if you prefer full-screen mode. The only workaround is: F6 (to show the location bar) + TAB (to focus on the text field for the location). Mike Rooney's first comment doesn't work for me. You can't type in the field unless you hit the key combination I mentioned. Thanks in advance! Martin
Also confirming on Linux. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4pre) Gecko/20090407 Shiretoko/3.5b4pre
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Another variant of this bug (reproduced with Firefox 3.5 20090624) When moving the focus to location bar by clicking into the location bar, "Search bookmarks and history" can be edited, but the entered address is ignored when pressing enter. Only after moving the focus away and back to the location bar, a new address can be entered. It is only reproducable, if the location bar is hidden when pressing Ctrl+t.
Bug 494373 has a patch, shouldn't this be a duplicate?
