The answer is "Hold down the key with the words "ctrl" and press l". Or
just have them go to view->location bar.

Also, FWIW, ctrl-l's behavior is very convinent. You press it and it
starts with the location bar text highlighted. You type what you want,
and when you press enter it magically disappears again.
