Firefox problem... help me!

    OK, I dont know what the heck is wrong with my firefox, but its acting screwy. I cant type apostrophes or forward slashes. Literally. When I hit those keys, the FIND function pops up as if I had hit ctrl+f. And I cant use my arrow keys, either. Nothing happens when I hit them. Also, I cant Select-All. Hitting ctrl+a doesnt work, and neither does going up to Edit and doing it that way.

    Anyone know what causes this? (I can hit shift+slash to get a question mark, but just hitting the slash gets me the FIND command -- same thing with apostrophe versus ")

    I know it is just Firefox, because MS Word still works the way it is supposed to -- all my keys work there.
  2. You could try to reset your Firefox settings. I'm assuming you've already restarted the program and/or your computer.

    Firefox did that to me a few weeks ago. The only thing I had to do was restart everything.

    I've noticed that Firefox has started allowing more and more pop-ups.

    Any solutions suggested?
