The enter key doesn't work in the address bar. Why, and how do I fix this?

Posted

I enter the address I want to go to in, and nothing happens. I have to hover above the 'reload page' icon, to get the -> and then click on the -> in order to get the address to process to the website I want.

This can happen if you have disabled all location bar suggestions. You will have to enable at least one suggestion to make the Enter key work.

The location bar drop-down list can show history items, bookmarked pages, pages opened in tabs, and search suggestions. You can set what suggestions show when you enter an URL in the location/address bar bar.

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Address Bar: When using the location bar, suggest:
    History
    Bookmarks
    Open tabs
