Firefox (Aurora) won't recognize any key strokes.

Posted

I stepped away from the computer for a moment to answer the phone and when I come back Firefox won't recognize any keystrokes that i make. I'm using Aurora 17.0a2 (2012-09-18). I think my cat may have stepped on the keyboard but I've tried starting it in safe mode by holding shift but it still wont except key strokes. I'm using Chrome to post this.
