Sometimes when I turn on my laptop, my keyboard will not work in firefox but works in every other application... Not even one key will work. I have to restart my computer to get it to work again... and lately it has happened every single time I have opened firefox... I am unsure what to do. Any help would be appreciated.
It irritates me I have to use internet explorer... terrible browser.

Please try a "Reset" as outlined below;
The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

I have done that multiple times and it still continues to happen every day.
I even reimaged my computer on tuesday hoping something would make it better, but firefox still refuses to let me use my keyboard!
Besides, resetting or uninstalling/reinstalling every day gets to be annoying.
Do you have multiple keyboard layouts installed?
It is possible that you have switched the keyboard layout by accident.
Windows remembers the keyboard layout setting per application and you may have changed the keyboard layout by accident via a keyboard shortcut.
Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Keyboards and Languages > Change keyboards > Advanced key settings > Change key sequence
I have no idea what you are talking about... so no??
I have never changed any keyboard settings in firefox at all.. it just simply no longer works in firefox....
i just uninstalled and reinstalled firefox for the 9th time this week... keyboard does not work at all in it.
I have the problem too, on WIndows XP sp3. Firefox works well only if i reinstall the version 16 (french). Since the version 17, keyboard doen't respond....
All others sofwtares (IE et chrome) work perfectly ;-(
