For the forms mode problem, try the following:
1. While in Chrome press, Insert + 6, on the number row to open the Settings Center.
2. Down arrow to, Forms mode closed, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow to, Select forms mode..., and tap the spacebar to toggle through the 3 options, stopping on, Manual.
Note: the 3 options are Auto, semi auto and manual.
There are other settings changes you can make in this dialogue depending on what forms mode you choose, so now that you're in the correct place you'll have to make your decisions.
As for the address bar issue I don't know if the forms mode setting was messing with this, but try the keystroke, Alt + D, to take you to the address bar.
Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Subject: Chrome automatically entering forms mode when displaying Google search results
I'm having a couple of issues using JAWS with Chrome: firstly, whenever I perform a Google search, JAWS goes into forms mode when it has displayed the list of search results, so I have to press escape before I can navigate through the page. Secondly, CTRL + L isn't taking me to the address bar.
I think I might have had this problem before, but I can't remember what caused it or how I fixed it. Any ideas?
