Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Steps to reproduce
1. place the mouse cursor below the search bar (e.g. in the middle of the browser window)
2. make the cursor enter the location bar with the keyboard (CTRL+L)
3. type the first letters of the site you're planning to go to (e.g. launchpad.net)
4. the location bar pops up with some results

Expected results
no result is selected, allowing to press the down key to select the first entry, usually a link to the root of the web site

Current results
if search result pop up appears below the mouse cursor, the element located under the mouse cursor is selected. This makes it hard to select the first element.

This story used to work in FF 2.0.

This issue is probably an upstream's issue. Other example of reports on
