Firefox 3 on Windows 7 undocumented key combo

By admin | August 16, 2009

When using Firefox 3 on Windows 7, you may find that sometimes Firefox randomly converts some of your keystrokes into different keys. However, this has not yet been experienced on any other program on Windows 7 or Firefox on a different operating system. For example some of the keys that are “randomly translated” include:

Regular alphanumeric characters and the number pad to the right of the regular keyboard do not seem to be affected apart from the above mentioned ones. A current working workaround would be to press the Shift-Alt combination, which changes those characters back to their regular combos for a while. Currently, the only true workaround is to restart Firefox.

This problem may or may not affect you, as it has only been reproduced with Firefox 3 on Windows 7 and on no other browser, application or operating system.
