Problem: Intermittent - address bar will not receive input typing. Search bar will not receive input typing.

Attempted solutions: restarted Firefox. Restarted MacPro. Used save mode launch. Complete reload of Firefox.

Comments: Once working Firefox is lightening fast and works flawlessly. The machine is a 2013 MacPro laptop which has recently been upgraded with a 16Gig chip and a new motherboard. Operating system is El Capitan. I have used Firefox happily since getting the computer. Chrome and Safari do not exhibit same problem. There have been no error messages.
