    It only works with the first website when you open FF. If you open a new tab and then click on the adress bar, it will not select all the text with just one click, so you have to mark all the text with your mouse manually and then delete it before you can type a website. This is very annoying. Google chrome didn't have this issue.
    I can't reproduce the problem. It works fine for me.

    See:


    RE: about:config fix for page actions button. I'm pretty sure that there isn't one. It's pretty straightforward to drop the attached file in the chrome folder though.

    Just a suggestion:

    Create a Bookmark about:blank, wheel-click it to open in a New Tab with cursor already focused in Address Bar:

    Also:
    if you want New Tab to open to a certain page, bookmark that page and wheel-click that to open in a New Tab:

    You can also wheel-click anywhere on the Firefox Header to open another original New Tab:

    I found that if i click the adress bar right away, it doesnt select all the text. However, if i click on the website (anywhere on the website) and then click on the adress bar, it selects all the text. Strange. I think this may have to do with FF setting focus to the adress bar instead of the website when you open a new tab. Will test it a bit.

    OK, so i tested it a bit. Callenders solution works.

    You have to set browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll to true in about:config, use the addon suggested and select set focus to the web page instead of the address bar. It will set focus on google search if you open a new tab, and it will let you select all the text in the adress bar with one click so you can start typing a website you want to visit right away.

    Just a note to say that crashreporter.exe is reinstated after applying a Firefox update. You can just check for it and delete it again.

    Another tip. If Firefox launch becomes slower over time you can defrag it's profile databases.

    See: SpeedyFox - Boost Firefox, Skype, Chrome, Thunderbird in a Single Click!

    I run this every few days. Or if you have Ccleaner installed the "Compact Databases" option does the same thing.

    Yeah that's why i would prefer a change in about:config instead, so i dont have to go back and delete files from folders again.

    I use wise cleaner to completely clean FF every now and then, like once in a week or so.

    I have used 64 Bit Firefox for a few years without any issues.
    So have I, but I have some kind of issue now. . . messed up profile, maybe ?

    Screen grab from CCleaner. . . .

    Jesus, that's a lot of extensions/addons. Actually, it seems like you have double the amount of each system extension as everone else, perhaps try reinstalling FF?

    Maybe it looks like two user accounts? How many users are logged in?

    Or maybe two FF Profiles. Run the profile manager to check.
