User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1

When suggestions are presented on either on the URL space, or the google search area to the right of the URL (on firefox 4.0.1), the keyboard's DOWN arrow no longer works.

this is very inconvenient as the down arrow SHOULD work.   Additionally, one's hands are already on the keyboard, so it would make far more sense to use the down arrow to navigate to the one of the suggestions rather than move one's hand to the mouse to point to the suggestions on the presented suggestions list.

may i ask when you might be able to fix this?   this has never been this way till version 4.0.1

thank you in advance.

Reproducible: Always

Does the issue still occur if you start Firefox in Safe Mode?

How about with a new, empty profile?
