Public bug reported:

After upgrading to version 11 last week Firefox wouldn't work (as described in original question): launch ok but typing url and pressing return or clicking green 'go' button in the address bar doesn't work. Impossible to use bookmarks either: Firefox Sync down.
All other actions in menus don't work, especially Restart with plugins disabled.
Only workaround possible so was to force back previous version available, i.e. 9.0.1

Seems to be plugin related: I re-upgraded with Adblock+ disabled and am
now able to type and visit addresses. BUT Firefox Sync still won't work:
all my bookmarks, recently visited sites and passwords are not

Reproduced anytime simply by upgrading to v11 (first from v10.0.2, then from 9.0.1) under Lucid 32bit. I have no problems with upgrade to v11 on my other machine with Lucid 32bit, but Firefox is installed directly from Mozilla sources in /opt.
Library, build issue?

Original question by Andrey:
I can fill URL string but neither pressing Enter on keyboard nor mouse click on green arrow right to address don't open page - only blank window. Had to install 9.0.1 from mozillateam/firefox-stable ppa
