Can you try in a new profile? This WFM in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090113 Minefield/3.2a1pre. Could be Mac only issue too.

> Still here with latest build.

Dimitris: it's infinitely more helpful if when you note that the problem still exists, you include the BuildID text from the about: page. (Just put about: in the URL bar).

Thanks!

OK, I thought it automatically meant the latest build from the date I made the comment :)
I am not able to confirm this using the latest trunk nightly,  Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090212 Minefield/3.2a1pre. If I follow your STR correctly, you are clicking in the URL bar dropdown and selecting one of the entries with your mouse?

No. I'm going to the history menu item and select any item in history.
I checked selecting a history menu item and it works for me the first time using the same build ID in Comment 9, so I am unable to reproduce the issue.
