Whenever I directly type a web address in the URL bar of FireFox (v3.0.5), it acts like it is searching through common bookmarks, but locks up for about a minute. I've disabled all my extensions; they are the only changes that I've made since it started [about a week ago]. Anyone have any ideas? Why is the address bar locking up while searching through my bookmarks? I only have about 30 bookmarks anyway. Any ideas? Please see screen shot.
