I can't easily use the search box, either within websites or the top right google search. I type one letter and cursor de-activates. So if I do want to use it I have to type the letter then cliclick the next space with the mouse, then type the next letter, then click etc. I still have 3.5.8 for Mac as the problem first occurred when I updated to 3.6 so I re-installed the earlier version. Its now occurred in this one too. I have All In One Sidebar, xmarks and Web Developer installed.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode start window to disable all extensions. You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

You should update your old "Shockwave Flash 10.0 r45" plugin. See ((Flash))
