Keeping mouse cursor over new tab button stops adress bar from updating

My problem is this:

If I click on the open new tab button, and then I keep my cursor there, such that I get the little tooltip "Open a new tab (Ctrl+T)..." , Firefox will stop the address bar from updating---it won't show my keyboard inputs, not will it search, or do anything else. This will resolve itself after I move my cursor away from the open new tab button and the tooltip stops showing, even my inputs will appear there.

This quite annoying, especially when opening a tab to search for something quickly...

I am dealing with this by disabling the tooltips via setting browser.chrome.toolbar_tips to false. Solves my problem and I don't particularly miss the tooltips, but if any devs want to get on this, that's where you should look.
