UPDATE: Apparently this was a problem with the firefox 3.6.11 beta; with the release version of 3.6.11 I no longer have this problem.
I don't know if this is a bug with Firefox or askbot, but it is pretty surprising behavior. I reported the following to Mozilla, but decided I might mention it here too:
I installed Firefox 3.6.11 beta today. When I visit the sites
I cannot navigate away using the URL bar or search box: using either seems to behave as if I had used the search feature for that site.
3 further notes:
I use these sites regularly and have not encountered this behavior before
Clicking a bookmark in my bookmark toolbar does take me to the expected page (away from the site)
I do not have this behavior on stackexchange sites like mathoverflow.net or stackoverflow.com
