Focus not set for input when opening Open Web Location dialog
When opening a new URL (ALT-L) you have to click in the input field to type anything, this is not logic.
This is Event Handling, I think - either that, or the dialog needs to have some property (SetInitialFocus or some such) that it doesn't have. -> Event Handling, CCing firstname.lastname@example.org (loads of people seem to have had their fingers in openLocation.xul, but he's been doing the tweaking.)

akkana/don/mcafee, any guess who should get this one?
Bug 35087 (saari), marked Future, covers the general problem that dialogs should always set the focus; trudelle's suggested workaround is that each dialog explicitly set focus upon opening, so I'll leave this bug with don since his team would probably own the OpenURL dialog. It's an accessibility issue, so it would be nice if someone addressed it one way or the other.
I'll work on this.
