I have been a loyal firefoxer for about 6 years and this makes me not want to continue......help.......!
Uninstall your current Firefox version, if possible, to cleanup the Windows registry and settings in security software.
Do NOT remove personal data when you uninstall your current Firefox version, because all profile folders will be removed and you will also lose your personal data like bookmarks and passwords from profiles of other Firefox versions.
Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored in the Firefox Profile Folder and won't be affected by an uninstall and (re)install, but make sure that "remove personal data" is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.
If you keep having problems then also create a new profile.
It sounds as though the Ctrl key is being treated as held down the entire time you're using Firefox. That would be incredibly annoying. In case it is your keyboard, if you rapidly tap each of the Ctrl keys a half dozen times, does that do anything to help?
Do you have a fancy mouse or trackball? Some come with driver applications that can send different key combinations to different applications, so that also would be worth checking.
