My address field does not display a webaddress when using a link to open a webpage.

When I open a web address via a link in a forum, from my email, from another webpage or even a search engine, there is no destination web address in the field. It just says go to a web address. Also, the reload button is dimmed (unuseable). How do I fix this?

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

Thanks for the suggestions.. trying them now.  :) Safe mode without themes looks so strange to me now.... If my add on department isn't the problem, I'm likely to be back. thanks again

Ok.. I disabled everything.. turned off hardware acceleration and am using all defaults. I checked all of the boxes on the safe mode start screen. The problem did not occur in safe mode. I restarted FF and the problem persists. Next stop.. Nvidia for possible driver updates, although I did just get that done about two weeks ago. Any other thoughts on the address field not having an address?
