firefox keyboard problem

Postby guest » 2006-03-06 09:15

Hello all,

I have a weird problem with firefox 1.0.7 for two days now. It makes the program totally unusable for me at the moment.

Alphabetic/numeric keyboard entries are not arriving in firefox anymore. Sometimes a couple of keystrokes will get trough after the start of the program? So, I can not enter locations or some keywords into the google search area. The keyboard is working fine in all other apps, for instance in a konsole.

The mouse is working as well. I can cut and paste an address in the location area. The arrow keys and delete key appear to be working as well then.

Reinstalling the software didn't help me. I tested it for a new user as well, no difference. I searched the net but couldn't find any answers, I'm lost.

Any assistance would be welcome, thanks in advance.

sorry for not mentioning that,

downloaded 1.5.0.1 from www.mozilla.com for Linux i686
I tried that version as well, unfortunately with the same behavior.

So I stayed with the current Debian testing 1.0.7-1 release.
