#181 Switch focus out of address bar with the keyboard.


Currently when the address bar has the focus, there seems to be no way to get out of it with the keyboard.
It would be useful a keyboard shortcut that would jump to the first file in the directory, then we would be able to browse to the desired file either by the arrows or by typing its name as usual.

    Something that would help would be the 'refresh' command. Suppose we deleted the address then we changed our mind and wanted to browse the displayed folder. We could hit 'refresh' and, besides refreshing the contents, the current address would be displayed again.
    Of course a shortcut like F6 to alternate between address bar, side panel and main window would be useful still.

    I noticed that I can now get out of the address bar with the keyboard (with the arrows and Tab).
    I noticed that Ctrl+Tab doesn't switch tabs anymore but then using the arrows switch them as long as they're focused (hitting Tab focus them if the focus is elsewhere).

    You probably don't know but there is a way to go out of path bar - it's Shift+Tab which puts you into side pane. And you can switch between side pane and folder view with F6 key. So everything is navigatable. Probably there is a need to describe it in a help. Well, I'll add a bug ticket for that. Thank you very much.
