Problem typing address in location bar. I start to type "mail" and FF suggests "http..." and doesn't erase the leading "h" when I continue typing.
Something new & annoying just start happening with Firefox 5.0 (and continues with 5.01, Mac OS). I want to go to a frequently used location, mail.yahoo.com, so it's in my History. I start to type "m" for "mail" and instead Firefox suggests "Switch to Tab: http://www.mysqueezebox.com/player/playerControl" (which *is* a currently in-use tab) and (probably critically) the initial "h" is NOT highlighted, but the rest of the address is. So when I keep typing, I get "hail" instead of "mail." If I backspace and start over it just happens again. It won't let me simply type "mail"! Any suggestions? Thanks, ...Chuck

Did further testing. If I close the "mysqueezebox.com" tab, then open a new tab, I don't have the problem. But I usually have that tab open (to control my Internet radio box), and I often want to go to mail, and this behavior only started happening very recently, so I'm thinking something changed in the Location Bar autocomplete behavior in FF 5.0.
Problem solved. I closed the "mysqueezebox.com" tab. Then I entered and re-entered "mail" and manually clicked on the entry I wanted in the dropdown list. After I did that 3 or 4 times it seemed to put "mail.yahoo.com" (the entry I wanted) at the top of the list. Now with the "mysqueezebox.com" tab open again, typing "m" followed by "ail" works as desired.
