Firefox Address Bar/Navigation Bar not working

Ok. So I have been using Linux w/ Firefox for quite some time now, and I've always had problems with Firefox. At first, it worked perfectly, but then...

At first, sometimes when I booted up the system, it wouldn't load firefox, it would show the little "Firefox is loading" thing down in the GNOME program bar, but then it wouldn't load. It would just stop.

Next, after I got it working, the Address Bar wouldn't work, it would allow me to type sites in and hit enter to go to the sites, but it wouldn't show the URL if I went to another address, say I typed "" and hit enter, it would go to Google. Next, I clicked "Sign in to Google", and it went to the sign in page, the URL would still say "". Not even "", just "".

Another problem is that the back, forward, stop, and refresh buttons won't work. They just appear grayed out no matter what. The home button works, but it only takes me to a blank page.

Can anyone give me some advice on what to do?

P.S. Yes, I do have Firefox 3, and I'm running Ubuntu.
