Hello, I just have upgraded to firefox 10.0. Everything was working fine previously but now everytime I enter a URL I have to use the mouse & click the arrow at the end because hitting enter no longer works in the URL field.

Posted

Hitting enter doesn't work in the URL field. Instead I have to click on the arrow at the end of the URL field with the mouse. The problem came right after upgrading to 10.0. I have the Yahoo toolbar & AVG toolbar(I had both toolbars already however). The search fields in both of the toolbars work when pressing enter. Just not the URL field at the top of firefox.

This actually sounds like you are having an issue with an add-on that you have installed. To verify & troubleshoot if this is the problem you can start Firefox in safe mode which disables all add-ons, and try to do what you were having problems doing before to verify if you are able to successfully perform the task without problems. Next you simply begin to enable each add-on one by one until the problem reoccurs in which case you will have identified the add-on causing the problem.

That was it, thanks for the help. After checking them one at a time it was AVG safe search plugin. The toolbars all still work, thanks for the help.
