When I press T, new tab is opened When I press R, tab is refreshed etc. I don't press shift or any other key, i can't close tab with "X" mark. I have to close all window.

Problem resolved. It was weird that all browsers was doing the same but any other program didn't detect bugged Ctrl, I think. Needed to reboot PC. Thanks

Do you have anything that might be pressing control on your end, like a script or something?

It is possible that some of the status keys (in this case possibly the Ctrl key) have the wrong state and Firefox sees them as still pressed.

Try to press all the status keys (Shift, Ctrl, Alt) at the left and right of the space bar a few times to see if that helps to recover from this. If it doesn't help then close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer.
