This morning I brought up Firefox on my Win10 64 system as I always do, and immediately hit "ctrl-k" to get the cursor into the "awesome bar" (which is set to all three tick boxes in the privacy & security -> address bar settings.) Usually I enter shortcuts (set in bookmarks, like 'gm' for mail.google.com) so that I don't have to type in the full address. However that didn't work today because every time I hit "ctrl-k" a question mark automatically appears in the "awesome bar". It will search just fine but if I want to go to a web site or use a short cut I have to backspace over the question mark or it will just search for what I'm typing in. I tried clearing everything (ctrl-shift-del, tick all boxes, "for all time") and still the problem persists. I also unchecked all three tick boxes in Privacy & Security -> Address bar and it still happens. Disabled all addons and problem persists. Help! This is seriously getting in the way of my work flow. Please let me know if there's any information that you need. I consider myself a power user so don't be afraid to dive into the weeds if need be.

Thanks!


and I see that it's running 65.0 (new version?).
