ok i have a wierd typing problem in firefox - as i am typing everyso often it seems to switch to insert as i type - for example, i typed the title i may have typed 'firefox' but it came out as 'firxofe' - its only doing this in firefox i think - word is fine.

its really really annoying.

here's an example - i'll type the above again:

I've had this in IE before, for some reason it decides to go back a character on random key presses, totally messing up strings. As has been said, try reinstalling.
