From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010628
BuildID:    2001062815

I really like one feature in IE: pressing <CTRL> + D to highlight the entire
address bar. This is really useful, and definitely better than tabbing tens of
times to get to the address bar.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to any site
2. In order to select the address bar , you have to to press the <TAB> key
several times, or use the mouse.


Expected Results:  Mozilla should highlight (select) the entire address bar on
pressing <CTRL> D or some other key combination.

See Internet Explorer's implementation of this.

Do you mean CTRL-L?
Resolving WFM as per hav0k's comment. Reporter: if this is not satisfactory,
then re-open the bug.

In due fairness to the reporter, the hotkey could have been better documented ;).
