Web address deletes as soon as the page loads

Whenever I click a link, or a recently visited page from the drop down history, as soon as the webpage loads, the web address deletes itself. This is annoying because sometimes I'd like to copy paste it to share with friends. Also, similar problem, when I'm typing on a webpage, sometimes it stops typing in on the webpage, and makes me type it in the web address bar, making me click the field i was typing in again. It's happened while I was filling this form out three times. Bought a new keyboard, thinking my tab button was stuck, didn't help. Can I get help for both of these two problems? Doesn't happen in Chrome or IE, but lets face it. . .they are both terrible, I like Firefox.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

If it works in Safe Mode and in normal mode with all extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) disabled then try to find which extension is causing it by enabling one extension at a time until the problem reappears.

Close and restart Firefox after each change via "Firefox > Exit" (Windows: Firefox/File > Exit; Mac: Firefox > Quit Firefox; Linux: Firefox/File > Quit)

Did all that, even restored my firefox to default. Still happens. Very annoying.
