after a recent update the ENTER key no longer takes me to the address shown in the location bar; nothing happens

more options

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.

Sounds to me like "AVG Safe Search" if you have "AVG Free" installed then you get the extension. Follow the directions on the page below and also check your other extensions for potential problems.

dmcritchie, Thank you so much. Disabling AVG Safe Search did the trick. I had uninstalled AVG because it hogged down my system. I never thought to look for "leftovers".
