Address bar does not work

I've been using Firefox all along with no problems. Then just out of the blue about an hour ago, it stopped navigating to websites when I use the address bar. It's like nothing even happens. I type out an address and hit enter, and it still just sits there with the cursor blinking, waiting for me to continue typing. I take the mouse and hit the "go" arrow button, and nothing.

I can still go places via bookmarks... but that leaves my browsing pretty limited.

Anyone have experience?

Firefox 3.0.19 is a quite old Firefox version?

Any particular reason the you still use such an old version?


Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
