Pressing CTRL+L works. But then i can not go back to the breadcrum navigation (i tried again CTRL+L)
I really liked the button to switch. But maybe this is not a bug, it's a feature

and when i close nautilus (after i pressed CTRL+L and switched to address line) and reopen nautilus, i have the breadcrum navigation again. So nautilus does not remember the last state.

There is a key in gconf to control this behavior, /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_location_entry. I unchecked it on mine (buttons instead of text in put) and could change back to text input with CTRL+L, but couldn't go back to the buttons with CTRL+L. Also, changing to text input with CTRL+L has no effect on the gconf settings, so it will default back to the previous setting when restarted.

In my opinion, it's not so much a bug as an aesthetic annoyance. ;)
However, it would be nice to at least have a setting in Preferences.

It's also a duplicate of Bug #508632

@jhansonxi: although it's related, it's not a full duplicate of 508632. One important aspect of this bug is that you can press CTRL+L to go from buttons to text entry but there is no way to revert that: the CTRL+L toggle only works one way, when it should really work both ways. 508632 only mentions the toolbar button, not the keyboard shortcut.
