hi. I am using FF 10.0.2 The location bar doesn't work properly. two issues:

  1. when I type in the loc bar, I get a list of suggested websites, but when I select one, instead of opening the page it just inserts the http address in the search bar. I then need to click on the arrow to go to the web site. Links selected in the search bar used to open automatically.
  2. smart key doesn't work. I have a few bookmarked pages to which I have assigned a keyword. Unfortunately when I type the keyword in the search bar and then hit enter nothing happens. I would need to type the keyword and then click on the arrow for the keyword to work. Before I upgraded to FF 10.0.2 the relevant webpage would have opened after typing the keyword in the search bar and pressing enter with no need for extra clicking.

Anyone knows how to fix these issues?

THX Safebrowser, disabling the AVG safe search add on solved the problem. No I guess it'll be up to AVG to fix their bug.

AVG Safe Search may be a cause. AVG is aware of the problem.

If that does not solve the problem:
