Summary says it all.

To reproduce:

1. Tab your way to the URL bar (it'll highlight).  Whatever URL is in
there now, press the down arrow.

2. In the box, it'll say "Search [Engine] for [URL]."  This will not
be highlighted.

Expected: Should just show the URL.

3. Press down arrow.  The "Search [..." text will highlight.

Expected: Dunno.  Maybe this is ok.

4. Press up arrow.  The "Search [..." text unhighlights.

Expected: pop-down should close.

In this mode, where the pop-down is active, up/down/tab all
seem to toggle between highlighting and unhighlighting.
None of them allow you "out" without hitting escape.

Expected:
  Down: If pop-down is open, nothing.  If pop-down isn't open, open it.
  Up: The opposite of down.  Pop it open, or nothing.
  Tab: next focusable field in the browser.
  
The current behavior makes the browser tough to use.  If I accidently
hit the down key when the focus is in the URL bar, it seems impossible
to get out of it without clicking somewhere.

Yes it can, you can press the right key :)
I think that section just works fine
2.-It remembers you what search engine you are using. That's handy
3.-It's ok, as you think it also may be :)
4.-Works with the right key (after choosing a match) or even if you go up with
no match

For all these reasons (especially the right arrow key closing the url bar- what
you wanted without clicking) i am marking this one INVALID
Now, i go to bed :)
