Once I open the Bookmarks menu and my bookmarks are displayed I can't go back to my home page.

Posted

I click on the Bookmarks icon and the Bookmarks list opens. My "Awesome Bar" disappears and when I try to get back to my homepage or out of the bookmarks list I can't. I end up shutting down my laptop just to restart my browser. Something's not right. Any suggestions? I'm sure I'm just missing something really obvious....
