User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0
Build ID: 20170824053622

Steps to reproduce:

In newest FF, every 5 or 6 clicks on an <a> link will not actually navigate to that page, just update the URL bar. Then upon clicking the reload button, the window will reload with the intended page.

Similarly, entering a search keyword in and hitting <enter> in a page, nothing will change (no state change). Hitting F5 or clicking the reload button will "reload" - but actually load for the first time - the desired page or search results.

Expected results:

As with every web browser in history, clicking on a link should reload the page with that link.

Tested on Build ID 20170803103124, Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0 and cannot reproduce the issue. Clicking on a link, or entering a keyword in a page and pressing <enter> key, will direct the user to the desired page or result, as intended.

yoni, please download the Firefox Nightly from here: and retest the problem.
If you still have the issue please create a new profile. You have the steps here :
Thank you
