1. Enter https://bugzilla.mozilla.org into the location bar.

Auto-complete drop down opens.

2. Click the "Go to the address in the location bar" icon.

Expected: drop down closes and page loads.

Actual: drop down closes and page does not load.

This makes it very confusing trying to select or paste text with the mouse
in the location bar.

The search bar behaves similarly wrt select and paste, but distinctly the
"Search" button is effective on click.

This is because the Go button is part of the textbox and the textbox is considered the popup's "anchor", causing consumeoutsideclicks="false" to be ignored there.

This should be marked a duplicate of bug 1089005.

The fix in that bug seems to have resolved this issue. The steps in comment 0 don't reproduce anymore.
Thanks!
