Sometimes Firefox does not load webpages when you click a link or enter a URL in the navigation bar. After clicking the link a few times or hitting Enter a few times Firefox starts loading the page. It hangs on "Looking up..." or also on "Transferring data". I don't think it's a probem with my Internet connection, because it happens wherever I am. Also Safari at just the same location and time doesn't have this Problem.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Just click an link or enter a URL once
Actual Results:  
Firefox seems to start loading, but nothing ever happens.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should open the expected website

I sometimes do see that after clicking a link it shows selected (the link gets a dotted outline) but doesn't go to the link. But after a second click it always goes to the link. I don't know if this is caused by an add-on.

This bug is still there in ff3b3. it is really annoying, can someone please confirm it, or better, solve it?

I think this can only be solved if there are reliable steps to reproduce. 
Maybe a discussion on a forum, like will provide more info.

Bug seems to be solved in ff3b4.
Last Resolved: 11 years ago
Resolution: --- → FIXED
This is not solved for me (still saw it yesterday) but maybe we're talking about a different issue. I had no plans to file a bug for it, so I leave this one closed. Changing resolution to WORKSFORME, because there is no patch attached to this bug.

This sounds like the problem I'm having, only mine will load certain pages but not others. It's also very picky about what it searches for on google which is really strange.
