Firefox not displaying current page URL in address book.

Firefox is now showing the URL data for the most recently opened tab in every address bar rather than the actual data for the page opened within that tab. For example, tab 1 is opened to wsj.com and tab two is the opened for foxnews.com, suddenly the address bar for tab 1 is now showing foxnews.com in the address bar AND it is now impossible to go 'back' because the back button is greyed out. Additionally, if a link is clicked from within the current tab, the URL in the address bar does not change but remains 'fixed' on the address opened in the most recently opened tab.

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes). See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears. You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions. You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")
