Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox


This is not really a bug, I just find it very annoying when I'm used to
press "alt+d" and "tab" to go to search bar. Now firefox's address bar
drops down a list of related addresses whenever it was focused. So when
I press "tab", it will rotate between those addresses. I had to press
"esc" to close the drop down, then "tab" to the search box. However,
this does occur in a newly opened tab, because the address bar is empty,
and there isn't any available choice.

I'm not sure this is a new feature or a miss programming. Is there
anyway to reverse it back to the original stat?
