Why can't I just press ENTER to go to the page when I have the complete URL typed into the address bar?

I dunno; maybe I'm just crazy, but I'd swear that before I downloaded FF4, I used to be able to (1) type in a complete URL, or (2) type a partial URL or keyword and choose what I wanted from a drop-down of recent URLs, then hit ENTER to be taken to the page I was looking for--all in the address bar, without having to use my mouse to click the little curly arrow at the right end of the address bar (next to the "favorite" star).

This will be caused by an add-on that is not working properly with Firefox 4. the procedure in the following link can be used to identify what one is causing your problem - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes

The AVG Safe Search add-on has caused this problem for some people.

BINGO! SOLVED IT!! It was that rotten AVG safe search. Bravo, and thank you, TonyE! (I often suspect I'm losing my marbles; glad to know that this time it was a false alarm;)
