Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Firefox 26.0 Not an addon issue - I've loaded up Fire Fox 2.6 and the same addons on a different computer and experienced no problems. Addons: Noscript (added after problem occured, not the cause) Adblock Plus, Adblock Plus Edge, Adblock Plus Popup Addon Plugins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.9 r900
  • Google Update
  • Next Generation Java Plug-in 10.51.2 for Mozilla browsers
  • Unity Player 4.3.1f1
  • Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.03
  • NPWLPG (did some self research on this, windows live photo gallery plugin. Not the cause)
  • Roblox Launcher Plugin

Computer is free of viruses. Scanned with Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy 2.0, AVG 2014, adwcleaner (powerful adware cleaner) No reset option for Firefox 26.0.

Whenever I go to a page on Firefox, such as google.ca (I'm living in Canada), the URL bar shows the URL for a split second and goes back to "Search or enter address" as though I haven't typed anything in for the first place. However, when I right click the URL bar when this happens the Undo option is selectable and not grayed out. When I clicked Undo the URL, https://www.google.ca, was back like normal.

The other issue is that whenever I'm typing something in on a webpage, like a search on google.ca, if the URL bar is blank like usual the | that appears when typing jumps to the URL bar and continues typing there. It is HIGHLY irritating whenever I'm trying to write a lengthy forum post and such or a quick search on YouTube and it cuts off and starts appearing in the URL bar where I need to click where I was previously typing and continue. I don't understand what's going on.

HI ethanwdp,

Sometimes a cookie will be stored for specific pages as well as a script. Clear all the cached paged in the History Manager that have google.ca. And try this one more time.

In the meantime there is an add on I use for forms that I often find pages losing data in them as well called https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../lazarus-form-recovery/

Please let us know how that goes, happy to help with your post back.
