Have IE11; just downloaded from Mozilla site Firefox; now the caps lock does not work, but it DOES still work in IE11. I have Win 7. This is a Microsoft 7000 keyboard. It worked just fine with a previous version of Firefox. I rebooted and followed all the troubleshooting tips shown on Internet for this problem on firefox but none worked. Cap lock DOES work in Notepad; and in typing emails,etc.; just won't work in Firefox.

Some have reported that pressing F9 and the Windows key simultaneously one or more times has worked to fix issues with the keyboard not working.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?
