I have read a lot of the same complaints, but no one seems to have a good solution for getting the Windows virtual keyboard to auto respond to Mozilla.

What is your Firefox? What is the virtual keyboard you are trying to use? Does the keyboard work with the other programs and Windows? Have you had other problems?


Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} While you are in safe mode;

Type about:preferences#advanced<Enter> in the address bar.

Under Advanced, Select General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration.

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?
