Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Configure preferences for selection of URLbar text
(browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll set to true)
2. Move focus away from the URL bar
3. Click on any of the miscellaneous URLbar icons:
   Feed icon
   EV icon
   various doorhanger icons

Actual result: URLbar text is selected and focused

Expected result: URLbar text is unaffected

Additional information: The Places Start Button has a partial workaround.

r=me I think my preference is for this one but there is not much in that, so whichever you prefer.
