When typing in the selected tab, it types in another opened tab that is not selected, how is this fixed?

For example: I have 3 tabs open. I have tab 1 selected, I switch to tab 3 and proceed to type (Log in details for example) When typing it out, the information I enter types out on tab 1, rather than 3, sometimes I don't check and press enter (Causing it to enter on tab 1, which could cause me to show my password on another site)

I have to switch between tabs like 3-4 times in order to sort the priority out.

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

Thanks for your reply cor-el.

What you have said has seem to have done the trick (For now) I can't force the problem at the moment to test if it's 100% fixed, will see how it goes today.

The add-on I think it's linked too it the "Smartest Bookmarks Bar 1.0.1.3".

If all goes well today I will mark this as solved, thanks again.
