After Upgrade to Firefox 20 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop server, You can't browse with firefox

Posted

After Upgrade to Firefox 20 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop server, You can't browse with firefox. When you type something to browse, and then press Enter, Nothing happends, Same thing with the search windows.

But Bookmarks and home button works, And also links then you have used the bookmarks to get to a website.

But you can't type a website and then press enter or the -> to get to a webpage after the upgrade.

This is tested now on 4 different servers all with the same problem after the upgrade.

It looks like firefox does not recogninize the Enter button anymore then on Remote Desktop Connection.
