This issue is not Ubuntu-related, it happens to me when running Windows too. It happens when Google's instant search becomes unavailable and you have press enter to search. In other words, it's not you or your computer's/browser's fault.

what to do about it? disable instant search? – Lynob Jan 11 '13 at 0:10
If you would like to, but at least for me this does not happen consistently enough to do that. – Josh Jan 13 '13 at 19:44
