Why are sites not showing URLs in address bar or showing incorrect URLs?

Posted

I have just noticed that when I will open a tab and view it the URL for that tab is incorrect. It shows the URL of another site instead of the URL for the site I am viewing.

Example: http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t254/MasakoTomoe/error-8.jpg

As you can see on that screenshot I am viewing the failblog but the URl showing in the address bar is http://input.mozilla.com/sad when it should be that of the failblog. No matter how many times I refresh, close/reopen same site, close/reopen firefox, the problem persists.

Now some sites aren't showing a URL at all: http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t254/MasakoTomoe/error2.jpg

As you can see in the second screenshot the URL is missing in the address bar.

You see, when I wanted to share a link with someone today to an image of two cute piglets it kept showing me the URL to an online game instead in the address bar. This is obviously not something that is suppose to happen.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe 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

Thanks, found the problem to be the IE tab extension I was using. Strange though, when I downloaded FF Beta it migrated that extension from my normal FF to my FF Beta and left it on.

Disabled and removed now. Thanks.
