If I type in URLs or such in the address bar then press Enter, it doesn't respond. Any open autocomplete panels will close, but it does not submit my request. This only started happening yesterday, from what I can tell. Sad panda.

Thanks! I saw that the thing was labeled as "unsupported"; I thought it was accordingly disabled by default. That did the trick, though. Much obliged.
