  • Computer Savvy CSers, I Need Your Help!

    About two days ago, my ability to navigate online to a page via the address bar disappeared on FireFox. I can type in the address, but thats all I can do. If I hit Enter, or even try to use the arrow, absolutely nothing happens.

    At the moment, all I can do is do a Google search and then click on the link, which is painful.

    Anyone got any ideas of whats gone wrong, by any happy chance?

    Cheers
    Di

      Sounds like a FF fault and reinstall would be advised. Id consider upgrading to 3.5 if you are using an older version

      Edit: You can try this too


      1. Exit Firefox and Start Firefox in Safe Mode from start menu option


      2. From the window that appears, elect the check box which says Reset toolbars and controls. Then click Make changes and Restart. Youll lose any changes youve made to FF toolbars

        If Di can type URLs then the Nav bar must already be visible.

                    Try pressing Ctrl + shift + L and see if you can open a website using the Open Location window. But Id be trying the Start in Safe Mode fix as mentioned in my first post above or updating FF. What version is shown under Help > About Firefox

                      Re: Computer Savvy CSers, I Need Your Help!

                      Thanks Flynn - its currently at V3.5.7, so I think its the latest at the moment.

                      I tried the Ctrl+Shift+L and that doesnt work either, so Ill try to reset and tell you how I go. Ill have to sign out for a little while.

                      If that doesnt work, Ill go with Marks suggestion and use Google Chrome, but Ive only just gotten used to FF (and love it, for the most part). Just as an aside, IE is working fine, but I dont really want to go back to that curmugenous cur!

                      Back in a few minutes to update...

                        I personally would be uninstalling FF and reinstalling it, personally......

                          Or just uninstall and reinstall. Im using Sea Monkey on this computer which is similar to FF.

                            Eureka (hmmm, why is it that whenever I see Flynns name, I want to pull out off the strine I can!) - all back again and it worked a treat. The CS Toolbar didnt disappear either, which was good.

                            Many thanks, Flynn, much appreciated.

                            The only thing I can think of that may have caused it was that a couple of days ago, I had a CoffeeSnobs Toolbar upgrade that I downloaded so possibly something in that may have just messed it up a bit.

                            And thanks to you, AM, TG and WSully for your help, too!

                            Cheers
