Why won't firefox (always) react to the address bar?

Sometimes the address bar in firefox won't respond when I type in it. How come?

Occasionally during a browsing session, when I try typing something into the address bar, firefox simply won't notice - it doesn't matter if it's www.google.com, a bookmark shortcut, or anything, the browser just doesn't react when I hit enter. I can still do anything else - click on links, open a bookmark by going through the bookmarks toolbar, or whatever, and if I open a new (concurrent) instance of firefox the address bar will work again, but it never comes back in the original instance. Anybody seen this before, or know how to fix it?
