Lately, I have been experiencing a very strange problem.
I can be quite fast on the keyboard, and I tend not to look at the screen while typing. So I bang a couple of sentences into the comment fields of my site, and then look at the screen only to find my entire effort there only in reverse.

Just out of interest, I did a search on Google and found that I am not alone.
Various theories are put forward, with most suggesting a virus. I can understand that as it is a typical manifestation of some of the older viruses (viri?). No. It’s not a virus.
Others have suggested an operation system, but it appears on several systems by all accounts.
Quite a few have suggested the keyboard which is obviously not the case.
The one common thread seems to be Firefox.
I have checked though quite a few inane suggestions, some misguided ones and quite a few who just suggest closing and reopening Firefox. The only reply that seems to make any sense is that it’s a Java problem?
My Java is as up to date as it can be, so I am a tad suspicious of this, but it remains the only plausible explanation.
Has anyone else experienced this?
