Problem typing into address bar and text entry fields when multiple tabs are open

Having a strange problem since the last upgrade to Firefox (v10). If I have more than one tab open and try to type into the address bar, it doesn't work in the tab I'm focused on, and instead types the text into a text field in one of my previous tabs. This also seems to happen for text entry boxes. Does anyone know why or how to fix?

May not be related to your problem but some of your Firefox Plugins are out-dated

  • Update All your Firefox Plugins -> https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
  • When Downloading Plugins Update setup files, Remove Checkmark from Downloading other Optional Softwares with your Plugins (e.g. Toolbars, McAfee, Google Chrome, etc.)
