FF 8.0.1 Issue with cursor keys
I encounter issue with using any of the keyboard cursor arrow keys (i.e. up/down/left/right, page up/dwn) in any textboxes on any websites that I open with FireFox.
I made sure I have the latest mouse/keyboard drivers installed and I also checked the behaviour by openiung a web site using Internet Explorer where these sympthoms do not occur.
When ever I enter any text and try to press arrow left/right the cursor didn't move. It only moves when I keep pressing the cursors key. The same happens by pressing Ctrl+arrow left/right or page down/up in multiline fields.
Any advices are greatly appreciated.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
I put Firefox in SafeMode, however the problem remains.
In themes Firefox tells me that the default theme (standard 8.0.1) and all add-ons are disabled.
THe problem still exists, it only occurs in any textboxes that I edit in FireFox 8.01.
It don't happens in any other application incl. MS Intenrnet Explorer.
and not in the previous version of FF8.
I am on a Windows7 64bit
