Address of Firefox 39 bar does not

The address bar does not work. I type the address and press ENTER, but nothing happens. I also tried clicking the arrow to the right of the address bar, but who does not work either. The rest of the buttons work. I tried refreshing Firefox, uninstall and reinstall Firefox and from Firefox in safe mode.

Hi kbuckler,
Sorry, you have problems with Firefox.

It is certainly what is now a known issue (Bug 1180419) affecting users with a corrupted database history and bookmarks.

There is a difficulty of finding the Firefox profile, while Firefox is open. Closing Firefox. Rename the file places.sqlite (say places.sqlite.broke1).

Firefox should then work on reboot. Unfortunately, you lose the history. Loss of history apart from his obvious loss also affects the use of the autocompletion of the location bar (aka awesomebar) and your newtab tiles.

See for this

but I'll put the instructions below. (Based on windows see the articles if needed similar information, Mac or Linux)

Find the profile

Click on the menu {(trois bar icĂ´ne) button click help {(?)) and select troubleshooting information.}} The troubleshooting information tab will open.
In the section the Application databases, click [Open Directory]. It will open a window with your profile files.

Closing of Firefox
Find the file called places.sqlite in the profile folder, you have opened.
Rename this file. I suggest you call it places.sqlite.broke1
Restart Firefox.
Firefox will re-create the database, using the latest automated backup, there when it is restarted.

Change of name, rather than deleting.
If history or specifications according to it are very important there are advanced methods that can sometimes work in the database file broken attachment. The file has been renamed to - broke1 will serve a copy that you might consider to try to fix.
The renamed file also leaves open the door to research methods of bookmarks lost if for example some very recent bookmarks were important and lost.

    Does what you has proposed and made a new profile, but simply copied to a file or folder at a time in the new profile in the Finder and started the profile to test to see if it worked or not for Google.

    It came down to formhistory.sqlite. The second I put that in Trial, the Google bar stopped working. Found out it just saves your form history and past Google searches, so I'm ok with starting over on that. I'll just have to enter my address one more time on the next form I fill out.

    I tried just compensation history form and search in Firefox, but that does not solve, so I went ahead and made another new profile and replaced the formhistory.sqlite from this profile file my trial period. It worked, then I did the same thing with 'default '.

    Problem. Solved.

  • Firefox address bar does not work

    I recently updated my software Kaspersky of Kaspersky Internet Security Kaspersky Total security, 2015 at around the time that Firefox automatically updated from version 35 to 36.

  • address & search bar does not

    When I open Firefox 10.0.2 and try to enter a URL in the address bar it seems that the address bar does not: I do not see the characters I typed. The same goes for the search bar. This does not have the 'closing', 'restore down', 'minimize' and orange buttons "firefox".

    What I did uninstall Firefox and reinstall it. I don't have much saved or who are related to him so it didn't matter to me. What I noticed after reinstalling, it is that the problem remained.

    When I close and Open firefox in safe mode, it seems that the address and search bar are working properly.

    How can I get Firefox works correctly in "normal"?

    Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance/themes).

    Problem with the location bar not working do not can be caused by the AVG Safe Search extension

    If this does not work in mode without failure, then disable all extensions and then try to find out who is the cause by allowing both the problem reappears.

    • Choose "Disable all add-ons" on issues to troubleshoot Firefox in Safe Mode to set window to disable all extensions.
    • Close and restart Firefox after each change through "file > exit ' (Mac: ' Firefox > leave";) Linux: "file > exit ')

  • Address bar does not open current tab URL COMPLETE

    The address bar does not show the current tabs URL COMPLETE. I tried the Trim URL thing nothing helped. It is also one that there is no option to COPY the LINK in the file menu. I need to be able to view the full URL and be able to copy for a variety of reasons. Would also be nice to make sure that I am on a HTTPS page and don't have to guess.
    Take a look at this site and see that no matter what you go to the page, the URL remains the same.

    Really want to know the reason that FF out of the combination, what is the problem or the issue or was it just someone's idea of a nice piece of code?

    If you are on a secure connection HTTPS, then you will always see the https: Protocol. Only the http: Protocol is hidden.

    If a page uses frames and other pages are open in a frame, then you will not see this picture link in the address bar.

    You can right click on a web page to see if images are used (this frame > view frame info)

    If your settings for brightness and contrast are wrong then you will see only the field highlighted.

    You can set the pref browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled false on the topic: config page to turn off the development of the field and to better discern the full URL.

  • The 'Awesome Bar' does not work. He does not remember anything of the bookmarks

    Just updated again Firefox. In the past, when I'd start typing a site in the firefox address bar it would complete as it was already in my favorites. But now it does nothing. It just sits there waiting for me the full address. I could start typing Netf and it automatically end

    Why is happening. Also, for the first days of the new version I had to go back in the tools, Options and reset things at least 3 or 4 times before they finally remained as I wanted.

    I would say he never remember history and after while I would look and he said, do not forget history. I wanted a blank start page, and not to change it. It's normal now but the Awesome Bar does not at all.

    Your bookmarks are displayed in the drop-down list auto suggestion?

    Otherwise: Under Options > confidentiality, in the lower part, does always show that Firefox should suggest bookmarks in the location bar?

    If auto-suggest works but the AutoFill does, you may check that it has not been disabled here:

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste autofs and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) If browser.urlbar.autoFill preference is "BOLD" and "user" false, double-click it to change its value to the default value true. It should work in new tabs.

    It already is the value true, hmm, I wonder if there is a problem of private browsing? (I didn't test with automatic private browsing).

  • Search bar does not work.

    I am running FF25.0.1 on Windows 7, but I had this problem for several versions, do not remember when he started. The search bar does not work with any engine, I can type and the cursor flashes but it does not research when I hit enter or use the search button.

    I tried:
    -clean the uninstall/reinstall firefox
    -create a profile
    -in the course of running as an administrator
    -test in safe mode
    -suppression of research and searchmetadata.json, formhistory.sqlite, etc..
    -removal of the plugins to search then by reinstalling ff to generate news
    -use the searchreset addon

    After some of them, the search bar will work only once to help enter or the button before returning to the uselessness.

    I'm more or less certain that I don't have a malicious software. I do not use the address bar to search because it is a little more complicated to use terms, including the slashes or openings of the diaphragm, and put except that I do not have the functions which do not hang out.

    Start the computer in Mode safe mode with network support Windows (on the startup screen, press F8) as a test to see if that helps.

    Do a clean reinstall and delete the program folder before Firefox to (re) install a new copy of the current version of Firefox.

    Download a new copy of Firefox and save the file to the desktop.

    Uninstall your current version of Firefox, if possible, the settings in the software security and cleaning of the Windows registry.

    • Do NOT remove the data personal when you uninstall your current version of Firefox, because all profile files will be deleted and you lose personal data such as bookmarks and passwords from other versions of Firefox profiles.

    Delete the program folder Firefox before installing newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.

    • (32-bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
    • (Windows 64 bit) "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla.

    Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and will not be affected by a uninstall and (re) install, but make sure that 'delete personal data' is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.
