Hi

I am hoping there is a really easy fix for this but for the last couple of days every time I press the space bar in firefox, either in the URL or the home page search it automatically places the curser in the search bar. if i have been typing something it continues in the search bar and if i press the space bar again it starts all over again.

i have tried safe mode, i have tried refreshing, i have unistalled and reinstalled but still the problem remains.

i really like firefox and I'm hoping there is solve for this as i don't want to move to another browser.

thank you all in advance for your help

What's your computer system and Firefox version?

Start your Computer in safe mode with networking. Then start Firefox. Try Safe websites. Is the problem still there?
