When opening new tab using (Ctrl + T) I can't enter the new address directly, I have to click the bar using mouse and then enter the address. Also, if I return to old tab I have also to click on the same page if I want to enter a text on it (i.e login page)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open FireFox
2.New Tab (ctrl + T)
3.Can't type new address in the bar directly
Actual Results:  
Can't type new address in the bar directly

Expected Results:  
it's really annoying, specially those who are familiar of using keyboard. Expected that I don't need to use the mouse any more when I'm browsing.
