On my Xoom, when I tap on the Awesome bar to enter a url the Awesome screen displays, but the keyboard does not initially display. I have to tap on the Awesome bar a second time and then the keyboard displays. This does not happen on my phone.

Firefox behaves like this when it is in "landscape" orientation, because the landscape keyboard on most Android phones is very disruptive and prevents us from showing the awesomebar right away.

For tablets, we should change this behavior. We'll do this in an upcoming version of Firefox.

Update: I filed a bug to track this issue - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=645725
