From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417 BuildID: 20022041711 If I type an address in the address bar, such as "www.google.com", and press "enter" nothing will happen. however, after, if I press ".", it will go to the URL: www.google.com. -- which, of course, does not exist. In addition, if I try to erase the original www.google.com, and start typing again, when I get as far as www. the browser will open the webpage known as "www.www.com". For no apparent reason, however, the address bar works like normal on rare occasions. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.type in an address in the address bar 2.try pressing "enter"--the icon is greyed out and nothing happens 3.start typing something else until you hit the "." button, Actual Results: it goes to whatever is typed in the address bar Expected Results: it should not have gone anywhere until I pressed "enter" the only workaround i can find for this is going to "file" and then "open web location", which seems to work.
When did this problem start? After you upgraded? If you upgraded, did you first delete your existing installation?
Yes, I had just upgraded when I noticed the problem. After uninstalling mozilla and re-installing it, however, the problem went away. That seems to be an easy fix.
This is sort of related to the anomalities that happen in bug 135222... basically, installing a newer version over an existing version of Mozilla is BAD. Latest installers should prompt you to first delete your existing Mozilla directory before proceeding with the upgrade. Since we know the problem now, I will go ahead and resolve the bug.
LATER is deprecated per bug 35839.
WFM per the above.
