Just like IE and K-Meleon do, pressing ALT+D in any browser window should give focus to the URL bar and select all of its text. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open any browser window 2. press ALT+D Actual Results: nothing Expected Results: Keyboard focus should be given to the URL bar and all of the text should be selected.
control-l currently does this. I don't think we need another key.
Why was CTRL+L chosen instead of ALT+D (already an arguably de facto standard)? I don't know what the browsers on Mac/Linux use.
Because Alt-whatever should not execute an action. It should open a menu... NS 4.x on linux has no keybinding to focus the URL bar, fwiw.
Boris: Okay, I agree with you there. Feel free to mark this is invalid. Or a duplicate of bug 19446?
I think marking this duplicate is the way to go... Though I definitely see why people would want alt+D to do this, that's also being discussed in bug 19446 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 19446 ***
