Ctrl+A in one-line text fields doesn't set up primary selection

When one selects text via Shift key or with mouse, Firefox sets up X primary selection, so it can be reached with xsel or xclip tool. But when i'm selecting via Ctrl+A shortcut, primary selection remains intact. It seems to affect only one-line text fields like address bar, search bar and this Question title, while in multi-line text fields like this Details or Troubleshooting Information Ctrl+A works fine.
