Firefox bug?

Everytime I am typing a response in a text field at di.net (Quick Reply, Advanced reply, Post New Thread text box, etc etc), certain keys trigger various functions in Firefox, while other keys don't work at all.

Keys that do not work:
  • Home Key
  • End Key
  • Shift + cursor key (to hilight text with the keyboard)

Keys with various responses:
  • ' key triggers the find or the "CTRL-F" option
  • / key views another part of the page I believe

There are others, but once I used the "list" command above, the problems went away so I'll have to wait until it happens next time. I will update this post as soon as I find more. Does anybody else have the same problems?

BTW, I'm using Firefox 1.0.6

I'm running 1.0.7, and don't have any of those problems... But i've had every version of Firefox since 1.0PR, and have never experienced any problem like that.

I would say either your install of firefox is messed up, or some other program is interfering....

I'm using Firefox 0.9 and have had no problems.

EDIT: Realizing that I haven't upgraded Firefox, I just downloaded 1.0.7 and there is no problems with that version either.

I do have a wireless keyboard, but I don't think that would be it. If I hit the "home" key while typing in the di.net text field, it won't go to the beginning of the line where as if I were to type in notepad and hit the "home" key, it does!

That can't be your problem (I too have a wireless keyboard & mouse <~~ found a great deal on Ebay). I am using Firefox version 1.0.6 and have zero problems with it. If there is a newer version, download that and see what happens.

Now that I made a thread about it, it hasn't happened since.

In your Control Panel window, I think you can change functions of keys...
Not sure how.
