Google toolbar white search box (top left of screen) will offer suggestions to complete searches (as it used to do): for example type 'l' and 'lloyds tsb' will come up. When I click on the offered 'lloyds tsb' nothing happens; on version 3.6.13 and previous versions I would be taken direct to website selected on click. Now I have to type in whole of desired website: not just 'l' but all of 'lloyds tsb', for example, before being redirected to where I want to go. Have used Firefox for ages; so frustrated that I'm contemplating returning to Internet Explorer or trying Google Chrome. I've tried reinstalling 4.0 three time and no joy. Help me or lose me!
