[.9beta4] url bar focus?

Hi!

I'm missing URL bar focus on new windows. It's okay in beta 3.

I know the focus on the url bar caused problems for some people (scroll-wheel not working), but not for me.

It is good to be able to enter an address immediately when I open a new window, as that is often the reason why the window was opened...

user_pref("kmeleon.display.NewWindowHasUrlFocus", true); doesn't do anything (known, I know) anymore. So how about letting it change s.th. again, namely toggling between beta3's behavior and the one from beta4? Would be really nice.

[Or was this no-focus-in-url-bar-anymore problem caused again by making changes to the layout of the bars, just like it happened a few times in the past to me?]

I think Ulf removed it completely. He may put the pref back in again if an overall solution can't be found.

I really liked that feature in the latest builds before beta 4. It was just great like it was (for me anyway).

He may put the pref back in again if an overall solution can't be found.

I hope he does add it (again). Who can/will tell him? He doesn't seem to get my mails and I'm no dev-list poster. Switching between the way it is now (beta 4) and like it was before (dec 1/2) would be great.

I really think of getting back to the dec 1/2 build, as I'm just like thinking <censored> on every new window that I open...

Is there a pref I'm not aware of? The known one doesn't give URL bar focus in RC1. :-(

'about:blank' should automatically get url bar focus now. Aren't you getting that?

Ah, that's true.

Aren't you getting that?

I'm using a local homepage and have set K-M to always display my homepage on new windows (not "blank"), so I hadn't noticed that yet ...

It would still be cool if kmeleon.display.NewWindowHasUrlFocus would work. ;-(
