I can not type a url in the browser window when I open a new tab. Why not?

Posted

I open a new tab click in browser window and see cursor but it does not blink. If I click in google search window it works fine. I can redirect using bookmarks but if I want to just type it in, it acts blocked or locked. Could I have done something to cause this? How can I fix this?

Are you using the same extensions on both computers?

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
