Description

Assuming a user wants to quickly access a page, when one launches Fennec and begins to type focus should be directed to the AwesomeBar using the HBK.

Sorry, I don't quite get it. We don't really have an address edit box, which could be focused. Do you mean start typing should bring up the awesome-screen? Is this a UX decision? Madhava?

This is without focus on anything; try it out in stock/dolphin. I start typing: "www", as soon as I start typing, the AwesomeBar should be invoked and valued with whatever I have typed and will continue to type.

OK, I see. Then the summary should be changed, as there is nothing to focus on. Does the new one reflect what you meant?
Summary: Typing with the HKB should invoke focus to the AwesomeBar → Typing with the HKB should open the Awesome Screen

Only possible exception is accelerator keys?

But generally, yes - if nothing is focused and you start typing, we might as well start in the awesomescreen.

We do want to make sure that documents continue to get keyevents, right?
