Normally when you create a new tab with ctrl+t you can directly write something, it directly go to the address bar. When you come from a video in full screen, in youtube for exemple, and you press ctrl+t, your typing is not focused on the address bar as usual and what you are typing go nowhere.

What is usual ? When come from to a normal tab and create a new tab with ctrl+t, when I begin to type, I am directly typing something on the address bar.

What is the issue ? When I come from a youtube video that is in full screen, I want to create a new tab with ctrl+t, my typing from the new tab address bar go nowhere and nothing is written.

Looks like you found a bug. I've filed a bug report for you (see bug 1631284).

As a workaround, you can press Ctrl + L to focus the address bar after creating the new tab.

Hi Wesley and thank you for your support. Yes you are right, CTRL + T and CTRL + L should be the best workaround we could use. Have a nice day.
