setting about:newtab as homepage should place the cursor in the location bar at startup
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:13.0a1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0a1 Build ID: 20120203102221 Steps to reproduce: Set about:newtab as homepage. Start Firefox. Actual results: The location bar is not selected by default. Expected results: The location bar should be selected by default.
Component: Untriaged → Tabbed Browser
OS: Linux → All
Hardware: x86_64 → All
Version: 13 Branch → Trunk
Setting the browser to start with a blank page and setting the browser to start with a home page of about:blank both set the cursor in the address bar. It seems reasonable that a home page of about:newtab should do the same thing.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Simple patch that uses isBlankPageURL() to set the value of isLoadingBlank.
