My address bar is malfunctioning. If an hour ago, I look up 'bicycle', and I then open up a new tab, the address bar will show 'bicycle'. Similarly, if I am on a website, instead of the address bar showing me that site's URL, I get either a previous search term or a previous URL. Highlighting the address bar and hitting 'esc' updates it to the current URL. Please help!

hello, can you try to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once? if not, maybe an addon is interfering here...
