can't type in empty fields like search engines or login informations until I click in a different field and back again - mac OSX snow leopard and mountain lion.

I am using firefox on both my macs (on is running mountain lion and the other snow leopard. It is annoying that in any fields typing only works upon the first click or ->tab on the field, when I click - for example mid sentence to delete a letter (for example) it does not type and the mac sounds the sound effect of "thump" - when you are trying to type in a non-field. The issue is resolved for that instance when I click into a different field (can be the same tab - for example I am typing into the ebay search tab - click on it a second time (thump - no typing) then click in the address bar, now back to the search - now carefully press the arrow howevermany times I need to get to the desired position or just retype the search string - mightily irritating. Same happens in emails, messages... any field! I really like firefox, after a run in with opera, some trouble with safari (tab support)... it was my favourite, with cross computer spaces... I hope this gets resolved soon.
