This happens with several but not all pages. Also I checked and my caret browsing is turned off.

This is a javascript coding issue with those sites. I tried turning all javascript off, and all sites that were having this issue no longer had it (of course they looked like crap). There is a specific javascript command that is being misinterpreted in FF 12.0, but I have no idea which one. Wonder if the Mozilla developers can do something about this in the next version...

This does not happen in FF v11, so my suggestion to anyone having this problem in v12 would be to revert to 11, and hope the issue is fixed in the next FF version. It's definitely a misread of a javascript function. Fairly large PITA. Unless someone comes along with a workaround solution....
