Is there a keyboard shortcut for focusing the "location bar" (the field that displays the current directory)? Even the Tab-Key does not stop at this field, so I have to use the mouse. Sometimes, it is faster to just type the path to the location you want to browse instead of navigating. Interestingly, Thunar seems to encourage this, because it even comes with a auto-completion for directory names!
It would be very handy if the focus could be set with a keyboard shortcut (e.g. Ctrl+d, which is used by most web browsers to do so).
