    Firefox magically unchanging URL...

    For some reason, as I change websites, the URL in the address bar fails to change. Does anybody have any idea what my problem may be?

    Does this occur for all websites or just certain ones? A URL won't change if the page has frames, perhaps the page you're browsing contains hidden frames?

    Otherwise, nope, no ideas.

    Yeah, it occurs for all websites. It may be some extension I've installed, so I'll have to check that out. I don't think it happened before I went on an extension spree, so... yeah...

    No, it works correctly in safe mode.

    Discovered the problem. It was the FasterFox extension.

    Was that the best title you could come up with?

    I suppose it's marginally better than
    Same Firefox question...

    Now we wait for
    Yet another Firefox question...
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    No, it's not. With "same question", you'd automatically know not to look at it

    On the contrary, the urge of finding out just why someone would post the same question would be impossible to resist.

    I did to annoy you.

    That's why.

    Edit: Sorry about that, though. I've kind of lost my ability to post intelligently :P
