Browser acts like a text editor; messing up scroll functions
Since updating to 8.0, if I click anywhere on my browser screen, a blinking cursor appears as if the whole page were in a text editor. This is affecting the function of my page up, page down and arrow keys when trying to scroll (for example, pressing the down arrow to scroll down scrolls automatically to the end of the page). Further updates have not fixed this.
You may have switched on caret browsing.
You can press press F7 (on Mac: fn + F7) to toggle caret browsing on/off.
