Firefox 3.6 when opening a link in new tab the url does not show in navigation toolbar while loading the web page. All ypu see is "Type a Web Adress" until the page load.

Before with my older version the URL was visible in navigation toolbar even before page started loading. How can I get this back?

A couple of possible causes. First check for an incompatible add-on, for details of how to do that see the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article.

Another possible cause is a problem with the file that stores bookmarks. One of the symptoms is the URL not being updated in the Location Bar as you browse. For details on this see locked or damaged places.sqlite.
