I found this is really annoying when I use Firefox in my iPhone and my Android tablet.

The keyboard blocks shortcuts and it takes an extra step to access browsing history and bookmarks.

Can you make this as a option?

I have the same inconvenience on iOS. I think, it started a few versions ago and yes, i also have to tick the left arrow in the upper left corner, to access the bookmarks. An option to en/disable the keyboard on startup would be very nice indeed!

Good idea. Ideally the keyboard should only show up if the user taps the URL bar.

Just tested Chrome and you get a nice new tab with no keyboard in the way (until you tap the input field)

I also updated the github with the suggestion here.
