I type into the Google box & when the suggestions appear in the drop-down they don't go into the box when I click on any of them

Posted

On 3.6 if I start typing in the Google search box & get a drop-down list of suggestions & click on one of them that item appears in the box. With the 4.0 beta when I click on it the list goes away leaving whatever I typed in the box. Why?

I have the same issue. It auto-populates but when I choose to select it, nothing happens and I'm left with the fragment of the word in the search box.

So how do we make Firefox aware of this? I like the new browser but this needs to be worked out.

I don' know what happened but I uninstalled 4.0 & went back to 3.6 & a couple days later reinstalled it & no longer have the problem. Let me know if anyone else has had the problem mysteriously disappear. Maybe Mozilla was listening.

This is weird.....I ran the "problem step recorder" in win7 and the google toolbar worked as it should....stopped the recording and the problem returned.

This problem began for me on release 4 b10. Before that, the bar worked fine. 4 b11 and RC do not work either. There are more threads on this issue. For probably one of the most popular toolbars, I would think this would have been addressed by now. It is my only disappointment with the release 4, but unfortunately it is a big one.

Apparently I was wrong about the problem being corrected. I went back in this morning. & it did the same thing again. I just got notification that data is ready to submit on 4b12 so let's see what happens.

Any more on this? I've downloaded the latest version & still have the same problem with it. Is this a glitch on Firefox or something between Google & of Firefox. Just to check I reloaded 3.6 & checked. Google search works fine just like it used to. Why does Mozilla seem to be ignoring this? I don't think I'm alone on this, at least not according to this forum.

Has anyone figured this out yet? Haven't checked back in a while & I'm still having this problem. Think I might uninstall the "new & improved" & go back to the 3.6

problem solved, at least for me. All you gotta' do is uninstall the google toolbar & reinstall it. It took awhile to figure out how to, but it worked
