Firefox URL Bar Problem

Posted by Ryan Jerz on Tuesday January 29, 2008.

I’ve been having this problem on my work machine occasionally, and today it was rampant all day. Here’s the machine info:

  • 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac
  • Mac OS X 10.4.11
  • 2 GB RAM
  • Firefox 2.0.0.11

The problem is that the address bar just stops working. I type in a URL and hit return…nothing. I click the little green arrow…nothing. I have to restart Firefox for it to function properly and go through the process again in twenty minutes.

A search for the problem yields a ton of issues using Firefox and Ubuntu, but just about nothing that seems related to this specific issue. Has anyone else run into this problem on a Mac and using Firefox 2?
