Bookmarks and links still work, but direct manipulation of address string is blocked :( Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.open browser, enter url 2.use ctrl+t to create new tab (creates new tab with about:blank) 3.go to new tab and enter url (fails) 4.return to original tab and edit url (fails) Actual Results: after a new tab is created the address bar (location bar) is no longer available for editing. Expected Results: address bar should available for editing on all tabs address bar should not be blocked for editing. maybe related to auto-complete, or tab focus issues that are already reported. I'm calling this a major feature because ff3.5 is useless to me as a developer until this is corrected. here is my current build info: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
I don't see this on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729). Can you see this problem in Safe Mode ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode )? If so, do you see it with a new profile ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager )?
Kyle, I'm sorry I reverted back to 3.0.11 so I could get some work done today, though I will test further soon. But... based on your details: * maybe the fix is in 3.5.1, vs 3.5, or * maybe internal to the gecko build (20090624 vs 20090715) Either way if it is fixed now I'll check it out again as soon as I have time. Looks like 3.5.1 was promoted 7/15 - unsure why my auto-update hadn't picked it up.
The gecko build just reflects the date the new version was built. This really sounds like something caused by an addon, so safe mode or a new profile should tell us that (use 3.5.1 or later of course :)
Version: unspecified → 3.5 Branch
I also cannot reproduce this. I bet it is an add-on problem.
wfm too resolving, but feel free to reopen if you can reproduce this in safe mode and with a new profile.
