Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/12.0.742.112 Safari/534.30

Steps to reproduce:

normal browsing  - example open www.google.com  enter a keyword to search. Opening the page it found. 


Actual results:

the page opens fine but incorrect (previous www.google.com) is shown in the address bar.  When opening other links from the page they open the pages but address bar still shows the same old incorrect page. When pressing refresh it refresh the page content but no change in the address bar.  


Expected results:

address bar should always show correct address. This was working fine for me on version 3 but on version 4 and 5 this issue is present.

Reporter, please can you confirm whether this issue still occurs using Firefox in safe mode and/or with a clean profile?

Tried the safe mode and works fine then. It has to be some addon probably. Thank you.

Addon bug and not a Mozilla bug -> INVALID

J, if you could try to figure out which addon is broken that would be helpful.
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Troubleshooting%20extensions%20and%20themes#w_test-for-faulty-extensions

If you find the culprit, please post its name and version here and contact the developer of the addon so they can fix the problem.
