Can't type anything in address and search fields.

User Help for Mozilla Firefox

I can't type anything in the address and search fields (near the address field), so everytime i have to go to a website, it's either through bookmarks, or i have to type the website's address on google and enter the website from the link. It's like the keyboard is locked or something. First time it happens to me. I had firefox 2 rc, and i tried to uninstall it and replace it with 1.5, but to no avail. what's going on?

It just occured me that the anti-keylogger that i downloaded yesterday might be the problem, and it is. My problem was gone after i disabled it. So if anyone has the same problem, it's because of that. So much for added security.

I have had the same trouble--where after viewing I am no longer able to type in the address or search field--or any other field. It seems to get stuck for a time, and then after a minute or two, it seems to reconnect--but hitting 'reload' doesn't seem to be the fix right away. I didn't download 'anti-keylogger' that the previous guest wrote about. This frozen fields problem did not occur until I updated to Firefox 2.0--and I've had the same trouble on both my work and home computer (also running Fx 2.0).

Will Fx be sending an update that will correct this?
Thank you.

I ust FF2.0 and have no problems that you refer to.
Perhaps you need to do a DeFrag on your computers.
I had problems with a different program that wouldn't work.
DeFrag fixed the problem for me.
