With an address displayed in the location bar, the only way I can go to that address is by clicking on the green right-arrow. This is a major annoyance. I used to be able to just hit ENTER to go there. As I start to type an address, the location bar displays suggested sites. I select a site and hit enter. The site displays. I hit enter again. Nothing happens. Firefox won't go to the site. I'm running Firefox 3.6.18. I tried 4.0, but didn't like the interface nor could I customize it, so I went back to 3.6.

On Windows7 Premium Home Edition, I cannot get a new tab to open no matter what I try. On occasion, if I click on a link on the current page, a second tab will open, but 99% of the time I am stuck using the first tab for everything and using the back button. I have tried ctrl/T, File/New Tab, right mouse click/New Tab, and the new tab button on the tab bar to the right of the current tab.

I tried installing Firefox 4 several times, and Firefox 5 several times. Each time, I got only as far as the window with the Firefox and Applications icons. When I dragged the Firefox icon onto the Applications icon and released it, it bounced back to its former position. Firefox 3.6 remained the only installed version.

I already have two profiles created in firefox and i just created a third one and went back to it later on and it is not in the profile manager. I also looked in the 'profiles.ini.text file' and only the first two are in there. I tried to type in the new profile like the first two in the 'ini text file', but it didn't work. I read different articles on this site and mozillazine about recovering lost profiles, but it still never explained how to make it appear in the profile manager. I've seen more than three listed there in a youtube video about profiles so I know it can be done. Can someone please help me, I would be much appreciative. Thank you.

I cannot open a new tab either by clicking on the button on the tool bar, going to File/Open New Tab or CTRL T. I think this happened after I upgraded to the newest version of Firefox. The only way I can get a new tab is to click on a bookmark or link and right click and select Open in New Tab. Very frustrating.
