how do i fix my keyboard typing the wrong letters in firefox but not in other programs?

Geplaatst

when i type the alpha numerics in order this is what i get. It should look like this. AaBbCcDdEeFfGgHhIiJjKkLlMmNnOoPpQqRrSsTtUuVvWwXxYyZz1234567890,./;'[]\-= but i get this instead, AaBbMmDdEeFfGgHhIiJjKkLlMmUuOoPpQqRrSsTtUuVvWwLlYyZz1234567890,./p2[]a-= the keys are random and never consistent. i am using a standard qwerty keyboard. logitech G105 backlit membrane. i am having to type in other programs like note pad or discord just to copy paste. just like i am having to do right now.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Did you try to reboot the computer ?

Do you have multiple keyboard layouts installed in Windows ? You may have switched accidentally to another layout.

Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.

Hello puddlejumper,

Try hitting the NUM LOCK/SCRN LOCK key (if you have such key).

Try hitting CTRL and Shift at the same time (this one worked for me, but my problem with the keyboard was not the same as yours, though).

More suggestions : https://www.auslogics.com/en/articles/fixing-windows-10-keyboard-types-the-wrong-characters/

And : https://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Keyboard-That-Has-the-Wrong-Characters

Any good ?

Numlock should be OFF .....

How about the two articles I gave you links to ?

Your initial post shows that only 'c' and 'x' and some symbols are affected. Are always these specific characters affected?

This can't be about status keys, but would be caused by a wrong keyboard layout or some software that modifies the keyboard scan codes.

Are you sure that you only have one keyboard layout installed (i,e, did you check this)?

numlock on a desktop pc shouldnt make a difference. but even with numlock off still jumbles. the keys effected are random. and those 2 links didnt help.yes and the only software that would alter keyboard layout is my LGS software for the G key macros on my G105

Do you have this problem with Firefox only, or does it also happen when you use e.g. Edge ?

Should that be the case, and none of our suggestions are helpful to you; maybe you could post your question on Microsoft's official support forum:

Well, maybe that's all it needed : a good night's sleep .....

But all kidding aside : wait and see what happens - let us know if the problem comes back, will you ?

Just a guess : the latest Windows update (about 36 hours ago for me) might have something to do with it ......

But fingers crossed that the problem won't be back.

Are you putting Firefox to sleep, or the computer? Many report issues when their computer 'wakes up.'
