I think you mean ALT-D, not CTRL-D, as an alternative shortcut to the
address bar.

And I think that historically it may be that ALT-D comes from Windows
File Explorer, and CTRL-L comes from various browsers. And only in more
recent iterations have both shortcuts worked on both types of windows in
MS Windows. Maybe?
