Public bug reported:

This evening (3/16/2012), the Firefox version 11 update that was pushed
to Ubuntu 10.04 has rendered FF useless.  The address bar and search bar
in Firefox stopped working after I upgraded to 11 in ubuntu 10.04.
Typing in URLs or search phrases is not followed by any FF activity.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no change.  I even went so far
as to rename the ".mozilla" folder to ".mozillaOld" (to create a new
profile), restart the PC and install FF again. After starting FF, I
answered the few prompts and FF then allowed me to enter one URL.  After
which, the application was rendered useless again. I restarted FF but
the problem persists.
