Caps lock problem

more options

I am having a very frustrating problem that is driving me huts.

Just the other day I was commenting in a text box like this one and I hit caps lock on my keyboard and a little grey box I had never seen before appeared with a locked lock. Then when I hit caps locks again on my keyboard an unlocked locked appeared in the little grey box. But it stays in cap locks and no matter what I do it won't go back to lower case. And when I say nothing shuts it off I mean its doing that on every site I try to comment on. Shutting down the browser does not help. And the only way I can get caps lock off is to actually shut down my whole computer and basically start all over.

You community volunteers are the best and quickest help I can get so I went straight to you for help.

Hi

This is not an issue with Firefox, but this Windows support answer should help:

Thanks as always. At lest I know it isn't Firefox. So I will fight with Windows. I am really terrible at this but cam call in kids and grandkids for tech support. But while they don't know very much about Firefox they are good with Windows which I hate with a passion.

I say this every time but you Firefox community volunteers are the best. I always get a quick reply and usually a solution. And if you can't solve it you at least get me on the right track.

Thanks again.
