URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

I wanted to pass on a URL of a page from Ebay. to a friend, but when I looked for it, it wasn`t there... all I have is a blue square with a lower case g and Google.... If i type anything in there, and then go to bookmarks to bring up another page, what I have typed will remain in the search bar...
is this something to do with Adblock Plus?  if so, how do I change it so it shows the url of the page I am on...
if not... again, how to I change it so it shows the url of the page I am on 
?
Thanks

Re: URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

The URL will be in the address bar, not the search bar...

Re: URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

Is it only happening with the Ebay URL, or are other URL's affected
What step(s) do I need to follow

Re: URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

One of the posts on that link gave a clue...... Remove addons until it comes right.... however.. I disabled "Classic Theme Restorer"... and the address bar returns.... except... all the little icons are now on the left of the address bar...you can move them to the right again, with "options"  but.... when you close that and open a new search page, they will be returned to the left side.
The "normal" address bar had been removed ( somehow ) and the small "google" search box to the right had replaced it...
will just have to get used to the new layout...  Cry

I have just blocked the auto update until this gets sorted
Odd thing is that even before I blocked it the auto update wouldn't work

What happens if you hit CTRL+L?

That sounds like it is the Google search bar and not the address bar - do you have both displayed?

Re: URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

It's a few days since I updated and haven't seen any problems.
Shutter, were you using a theme and if so which one?

Re: URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

I just bit the bullet and did a manual update as the auto update wasn't working and there are no problems with Classic Theme Restorer
Mind you I don't use the Google Search bar

Re: URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

OK... all back to "normal"......
Disabled Classic Theme Restorer.... and as reported above, it seemed to be partially responsible.... and managed to get the urls displayed in the address bar...
have not been on the net for about an hour or so... just re-enabled Classic Theme Restorer... and using the "customise" the heading, have removed all the icons on the left of the address bar, and re-instated them to the right ... shut down firefox and come back on again. and everything is as it was...
@Jelv..
FF30.0 seems to have changed the "style" of the tabs and possibly some other subtle changes, so I installed the add-on Classic Theme Restorer, which brings back square corners on tabs and stuff,... which was how it used to be !... apart from that... no, I was not using any particular "theme" only what was provided in the "update" ....  Regarding the Google search bar q uery... no...I did not have the "normal" address bar showing.. that is what caused me to post in the first place...... incidentally, when I did my Customising... I deliberately left off the "Google search bar"... so not showing now.....

Re: URL`s do not show in Google Search Bar

Hmm.... weird.... just opened up a new google search page, and the icons have re-appeared on the left side of the address bar..... so... instead of moving all the icons, I tried to move the address bar into the "customise" box... then back to it`s normal position... it worked..... so closed it down,... re-opened a new google search page, and ...... all is good !... icons on the right...
not sure how this happens... but hopefully it is all fixed ( again ) now.!.
