    Did a clean install of Win 7 a couple of weeks ago (upgraded from XP). I have the latest version of Firefox (17.0.1). When I am typing something, like replying to a post or filling out an online form, occasionally the cursor will suddenly jump back about ten spaces. It happens only once in a while but often enough to be annoying. I type pretty fast (80+ wpm) so I first thought since I'm using the laptop's built-in keyboard that I was accidentally hitting a key to cause this to happen. But I slowed way down and it still happened.

    This does not happen when using apps like Word, Notepad, etc. - only when using Firefox. What could be causing it? This laptop has never been infected with anything.
