The problem here is that it isn't that easy to do, and many users don't
notice where the focus is on a dialog with so many controls. It's easy
on word processor apps or webbrowsers where there's really only one
'control' where Ctrl-A works. But the log dialog is different.

Ctrl-L, Alt-D

both work now.
In the next nightly build, also Ctrl-K will work since that's the key
Firefox uses to switch to the 'search' box.
