Description

a month ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:54.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/54.0
Build ID: 20170612122310

Steps to reproduce:

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 on a Thinkpad X1 carbon 5th gen laptop. My OS is up to date and I am using Firefox 54.0 (64Bit version). As in the heading of the question it won't allow me to select from the suggestions given either at the top search bar at Firefox, google.com search bar and etc. by pressing the down and up arrow keys. When pressing the down arrow key the appeared suggestion list gets flicks.

Have you tried if you see this issue in a new profile, too? You can find details on how to create a new profile (without changing anything in your regular profile!) at https://support.mozilla.org/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles .

Have you tried if you see this issue in Firefox's safe mode, too? You can restart Firefox into safe mode by using the 'Restart Firefox with add-ons disabled' entry in the 'Help' menu. This will also disable graphics hardware acceleration and some JS engine optimizations, not just extensions and plugins. See https://support.mozilla.org/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode .

Finally, what window manager and compositor are you using on this Linux machine?

Hi kasun(reporter),

Is this reproducible with latest Firefox build? If yes, could you please provide "about:support" information as an attachment. Thanks

Hi all,

I am unable to update firefox using `apt-get update` seems like the new one is still not published to Ubuntu repo.


Thanks
