I have increasing instances of having my typed keyboard characters being replaced by garbage. This happens in search boxes within websites and even in input areas on the Firefox basic screen. Clearing my history and caches clear up the issue for a short time, closing Firefox and reopening Firefox clears it for a short time. While this issue occurs, I can still properly type with a Word document of Excel spreadsheet, so I type there (usually Word), cut what I typed and paste it into the proper part of the web screen.

This issue started up about a week ago. I am running under Windows 7 Home Premium, service pack 1, 32-bit operating system.

I have no images of the issue at this time.

Firefox worked fine until the latest update 115.3esr, at time it slows to a crawl... I am now sick and tired of Mozilla and Firefox, they are about to get the boot - my style, I've used them since about version 2.

Looking in the task manager Mozilla makes it look a disgrace, at time it's hard to get a fix on some entry's because they bounce up and down.

Firefox.exe 45,24K Firefox.exe 3,16K Firefox.exe 27,484K Firefox.exe 7,392K Firefox.exe 7,344K Firefox.exe 15,735K Firefox.exe 7,320K Firefox.exe 169,932K, I round it off to about 250MB

Does these look about right? Why can't they just have one .exe? (Win 7 Pro x64)

Thanks Dave

I'm running the latest FF under Win7. Seems that whenever I go to the Merriam-Webster (dot) com site, after a few seconds, my disk activity light goes solid, and the FF CPU usage spike to 10-25%. One time, to regain control of my system (because everything seemed hung) I actually had to resort to the physical power-down switch. Obviously I immediately ran a virus scan upon coming back up (scan showed all okay). Now, if I stay away from Merriam-Webster, FF behaves normally. But it's a damned dictionary site. I occasionally will need to use it or stumble into it. I've used MW in the past without problems. Does anyone know what's going on?

firefox downloads articles with folder symbol indicating a successful save, then later dozens of articles show circle-arrow indicating that large numbers of articles did NOT download after all. I have to click each circle-arrow individually (20 or 30 or more sometimes) to "re-download" them, VERY VERY aggravating.
