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.

Hi GaneshDatt-19, Are you saying that in Firefox the Keyboard has problems only typing in to the search bar ??

Can you open threads like this and type information ? What about the address bar can you type in to that ? What about from the bookmark star can you type tag names ?

Have you tried Firefox in its safe mode does that help ?

Fred Any further explanation or longer term solution for this F9 issue. It was not something I had noticed. Have you any useful links ?
