[qutebrowser] Editing command/url line

I am looking for something similar to Bash's edit-and-execute-command. That is, when typing a commnad, say ":open -t www.anwebsite.com/d1/d2/d3", I would like to drop to my editor. The editor would have the same contents of the command line, ":open -t www.anwebsite.com/d1/d2/d3<http://www.anwebsite.com/d1/d2/d3>", and I would be able to edit the line and after quitting the editor, the edited line would be executed in Qutebrowser.

I thought edit-command was what I needed, so I tried to add


to the config file. However, the shortcut only works if I am in "normal mode", which does not help because the command line will be empty. Nothing happens when I am typing something in the command line and try Ctrl-B. Any idea?
