windows 10 64bit, latest firefox install. i see an issue with my keyboard typing the wrong characters in firefox, it seems to randomly replace the character i press on the keyboard with a different one. I can be typing something into a webpage, either ebay or facebook, or even an address on any ecomerce site, and i get ridiculous spelling issues. E.g i type "firefox issue" into this page, and i get "firefix issue" if i goto the the "O" btton on the keyboard, and hold it down, i get "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiooiiiiiiii" or some other random pattern. I don't have any emoji extensions installed, and have zone alarm installed, and its up to date too. Any ideas??

Is this behaviour unique to firefox? If so, you might try launching in safe mode in about:support to see if this behaviour still persists.

Since you mentioned ZoneAlarm, it has an anti-keylogger feature that sometimes leads to garbled input in Firefox. In past threads, disabling that feature resolved the issue; I don't know whether there is any middle ground.
