Hi All fine until the latest Firefox update. Straight afterwards the keyboard wasn't functioning - weird characters and symbols instead of letters. I closed it down, opened in safe mode, closed down, opened normally and the keyboard working normally. Unfortunately I have to keep doing this. I can get Firefox to work by going into safe mode but it doesn't last. Keep getting keyboard problems. Is there a long-term solution please?

I've noticed this over the past several versions of Firefox for OS X, and under Mavericks as well as Yosemite, on 2 different Macs of Mine: a 2009 Mac Pro and a 2012 Mac Book Pro.

The issues are: sometimes Firefox will not create a new tab or window when I press those keyboard commands, and sometimes, I am unable to type into form fields. Restarting Firefox will remedy the problem, until it happens again.

Otherwise, I find Firefox to be a great browser! Thank you for producing it.

On my Lenovo laptop, the left shift key doesn't work within Firefox.

Both shift keys work in other browsers, other programs, etc. The right shift key works within Firefox. When I try to use the left shift key together with another key, nothing happens. For example, a capital H just won't appear and if I type "Hi" it appears as just "i". When I plug in an external keyboard, both the right and left shift keys DO work

What I've tried so far: - Uninstalled and reinstalled FF - Tried FF in safe mode - Uninstalled and reinstalled the keyboard from Device Manager in Windows - Restarted laptop

None of this works! Would appreciate suggestions.

I had bought Logitech keyboard which has a InHdian currency symbol key. I installed the hotfix for indian keyboard from Microsoft support webpage so as to use the currency. It worked well with MS office. However, firefox simply refused to display the text that I typed in the address bar. It only showed some garbage. I tried changing the keyboard back to US, even then it gave me the same result. I had to uninstall the keyboard inorder to get firefox running. Very frustrating experience.

I am unable to use my keyboard for typing characters on any firefox page including the google search bar. I am able to type without problems on IE, notepad, word etc etc.

I have windows 10 installed on my PC and also Win XP on a dual boot - the keyboard functions fine on Firefox with XP. 

I have tried resetting and installing from scratch with no effect and have latest Firefox version. I use Kasperski IS latest version. Any help gratefully received as it’s a pain having to type everything into notepad and the copying & pasting!

The only keys that respond are the backslash and the period on the numeric pad..

Keyboard stops working when Firefox is running

Hello.

I installed Firefox 50.0 with no add-ons or extensions. I've never had Firefox on this laptop. I didn't change any settings except to import my bookmarks/favorites from Internet Explorer.

I am using a Windows 10 Professional HP Envy laptop. I have a full-sized USB keyboard. Using Kaspersky Internet Security.

The problem I am having is that when Firefox is running, periodically my keyboard stops working on OTHER applications that are running.

How I recreate this is:

1. Restart Windows.

2. Launch an application. For example, in my scenario, it is any of a Remote Desktop session, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, and/or Skype.

All is working fine, keyboard-wise. And has always worked fine as far as I know. This includes the USB keyboard and the laptop keyboard.

3. Launch Firefox and visit, say, this page or GMail or any site really.

After a period of time, minutes or even up to an hour, suddenly any typing I perform in, say my Remote Desktop or in Word will just stop. For example, I type "the" and "the" doesn't enter in to Word or Remote Desktop or any other application that is running. All applications just stop accepting keyboard input. Any keys - letter or numbers or number pad numbers just don't register.

It will remain this way until the moment I close Firefox. The moment I do, all applications begin responding to keyboard input.

If I redo this scenario, it will occur again minutes or even an hour later.

Things I tried but didn't resolve this. I restarted my laptop before each attempt.

1. Searching here. 2. Reinstalling Firefox. 3. A new keyboard. 4. Use the laptop keyboard. 5. Visiting ONLY ONE page to see if it could be magically related to a specific web page, say GMail or a news site. 6. Searching the internet for "firefox keyboard stops working" which does have related hits with the most current that I've found being 2009. None of the things I found there or here seem to have helped.

The only thing that DID work was not using Firefox.

If I don't run Firefox the problem does not appear. The longest I've gone between restarts is 36 hours so I can't say "never", only that the problem hasn't appeared. I sometimes hibernate or sleep in those gaps. If I run Firefox, the problem will appear within one hour, which is what leads me to think the problem is somehow Firefox related.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance!

Robert

Hi

Since I upgraded to Windows 10, the keyboard isn't working well in Firefox. It misses the first key that i enter in all fields. I am running the latest version of Firefox and have updated Java. I am always having to re-enter data

Any thoughts how to rectify the issue? I'm not having this issue in any other program on the computer. CTRL C and CTRL V isn't working well either.

I've read the forums and see that this is a recurring problem on different systems over a long period of time, but there seems to be no official fix to this issue since it's documented over a five year period (that I can find).

I'm running FF 41.0.1 on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.9.5. I have no FF add-ons.

This problem happens repeatedly on my wireless keyboard and my laptop keyboard. Sometimes if affects only keyboard shorts cuts, sometimes it affects EVERY input field in FF. Sometimes I have multiple tabs open, sometimes just one or two.

No apparent rhyme or reason. I can go days without a problem and then have it happen tow or three time is one day.

My fix is to quit and restart FF

Very frustrating when you're in the middle of filling out online forms...

Hello, I am having major issues with wireless keyboard in FF. I have tried a few wireless keyboards in FF and there is a major lag while typing and things also do not type in the order they were pressed on the keyboard(s). Also keys "stick" while typing. like when I hit shift to capitalize the first letter of the word, the entire word ends up capitalized. Also some keys don't register (don't type at all.) These issues do happen anywhere else in the OS or in any other programs or web browsers. AGAIN, this happens with multiple types/brands of wireless keyboards. The wireless dongle is also located right next to the keyboard and in direct line of sight and it is not near anything that would cause interference. Any help is greatly appreciated.

This is on Windows 10 Anniversary Update and FF 48.0.2.

I had recently upgraded my Windows 7 Home Basic 32Bit to 64Bit. The Firefox v45.0.2 was also installed but still I am unable to type anything anywhere in the Firefox browser only even in the earlier versions as well e.g. v43, 45.0.1 etc. The other browsers are working fine. I had installed and uninstalled the Firefox, Reseted / Refreshed the Firefox, checked for my system keyboard as US Keyboard etc. several times but still there is no improvement. What could be the other probable checks and jobs in order to get the Firefox work properly? My Desktop PC has 4gb ddr3 1333Mhz ram, i3 2nd Gen processor and various other softwares installed including, but not limited to, various Security softwares like Kaspersky Internet Security 2016 etc.

Can you please fix this serious bug on the next update? I can use other browsers until it's fixed. Thanks! Martin

On any field that needs input, extra characters are added (eg Seeeeeeeeeeeeeetmmmmmefffffffvtttttehhhhhhh ... when trying to type Steve). hitting shift will stop the additions which restart on the next keystroke. Also sometimes get a green edged screen , with an orange box in bottom right with a keyboard icon and a box showing contents of field and an 'encrypting' message. Have tried restart and reinstall .... and scanned with Sophos no problem. This was happening on other programmes as well, but now only Firefox is effected. Did have the latest Windows 10 update recently. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.

I have a wireless keyboard and I cannot adjust the volume when listening to a video or music. I have to click away from the browser in order to adjust the volume for it to work. Sometimes I get a delay of about 3-4 seconds if/when it works which is very seldom. I do not have this issue at all with IE or Chrome. I love Firefox and would like to use it more but this is a bit of a annoyance and I have to use Chrome instead of this browser. Small bug that can be fixed. Thanks.

Whenever I use the Hiragana input method for Japanese (Mac) the keyboard freezes up every other time I try to type. After typing one sentence or phrase in Japanese, I need to manually switch to another language, then switch back to Japanese to unfreeze the keyboard for use in Firefox. I seems to get stuck when I am offered to choose between homophonous logographs i.e. 用紙 and 要旨, and although the arrow keys work to toggle between different choices, 'enter' nor 'space bar' will register, thus preventing me from naturally exiting the drop down scroll and moving on. This problem only occurs inside Firefox, and only with Japanese Hiragana (Chinese Pinyin works fine ironically). In Safari and other browsers the input method also works fine. Thank you for answering my question.
