I'll have a play with Ctrl + E to focus the secondary search bar or main search bar if the secondary bar is not shown.
I don't think it would be a good idea (though this kind of things needs experience of trying and error). I think it would be better to have separate shortcuts for main search and secondary search.
As I've suggested for FindBar
Ctrl+F = On/SelectAll/Off
You might try this also for secondary search, i.e. one hit will bring it up, second hit will hide it as long as the text is empty or all-text-is-already-selceted, else select-all-text.
Ctrl + K appears to clear the address bar too (search bar on Firefox), I'll add this to Everything to focus the main Search and select all the text.
It seems you tested in the new Firefox with the one bar.
I'm still using (an old version of Firefox with) the two bars (one of the things I prefer Firefox over Chrome), which Ctrl+E/K affecting only the search bar, and don't clear, but focusing the search bar with select-all.

I can't understand the point with clearing the bar.
I am very pleased with how Ctrl+F works currently in Everything, except the problem it is disabled when History show-up.
Alt + D focuses the Address Bar in Chrome, Firefox and IE for me.
Is there a planning to use the Search Bar in Everything also as Address Bar?
F6 also works in Everything (tabs between major widgets - the result list and search bar)
Consider to focus the search bar first, and later the result list. Might be more useful for someone hopefully.
Ctrl + F/F3 is planned for the Find bar. So in Everything 1.5 you will hopefully have:
The main search bar (Alt + D/F6/Ctrl+E-when secondary search bar is not shown/Ctrl+K)
Secondary search bar. (Ctrl+E)
Find bar. (Ctrl+F/F3)
There is one more shortkey you need to take into account. Currently Everything using <Enter> to focus the MaxRunHistory, and you can't skip to the next/prev. Maybe F3 / Shift+F3 can be used here, as long as FIndbar wasn't called.
