This is a recent common issue, similar to what we had when 3.5 was in beta. If you use the Location bar to find a webpage then press <Enter>, Firefox does not go to the webpage. Cause: It's usually AVG, but we hearing reports that it may be another add-on. Solution: Disable the offending add-on.
Draft is up. Marking this FIXED.

Moved to the KB at: Thu 14 of Jan, 2010 15:07 EST Review notes: - the intro didn't tell the reader anything new, and inaccurately described the problem. The problem is not being unable to enter a URL, but that pressing Enter does nothing (after the URL is typed). The cause of the problem and summary of the fix should also be in the intro. - when sending readers off to another article, but the link at the end of the sentence, when they have finished reading the sentence.
