After viewing certain pages with active content and typing another URL into the location bar the original page reloads itself. I've had this happen on two pages; elibrary.mel.org and oracle.com.

Reproduction of the problem is as follows: 1) goto oracle.com 2) do a search on something 3) goto another URL (like google.com) via the location bar (same tab) R) result is a reload of the search results page

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.
