Workaround: <Escape><Enter>.

I'm not sure if that's intentional or not, but you might want to file a
Bugzilla bug about the behaviour. I know I get annoyed by it too, but I
think it could be considered non-intuitive to make Enter in that text
widget change the currently-browsed page half of the time.

You could file a bug against that, too. That seems to be a regression on
bug #110635.

You can file a bug against that, too :).

By the way, to file bugs, head to Don't be
afraid of all the text fields; you can ignore most of them quite
happily :).

The adblock extension does in fact work, but it requires either:

(a) a couple of Mozilla patches: follow the trail from
- or -
(b) patience, because Epiphany will crash every time you quit

Take your pick! In the case of (a) you'll have to recompile Mozilla and
then compile adblock; in the case of (b) you can get away with only
compiling adblock. No distributor is going to distribute a crashing
extension, so adblock will have to wait until those two Mozilla bugs are

You're not the only one!
