View Full Version : [ubuntu] Tab key, Arrow keys not working when on firefox

August 14th, 2010, 08:24 AM

This is a weird problem I am facing right now. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) Firefox 3.6.3. The tab key, the arrow keys and the page down / up keys dont work anymore. They're working fine in any other application, like Chrome.

The keys were fine till yesterday and suddenly they have stopped responding.

See Firefox General Troubleshooting Steps (http://firefox-tutorials.blogspot.com/2010/05/general-troubleshooting-steps.html) tutorial.

Report back with the results.

I had the same problem. After disabling my add ons one by one I found that the Delicious Bookmarks Add-on was the culprit, version 2.1.102. Hopefully they fix this soon.

jdixon567 is right, disabling Delicious Add-on fixes keyboard shortcuts.

Other reports of problems with delicious are starting to show in the forums. Better disable it for now. Nevertheless, you can get the old version, which seems to be working, at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3615/versions/

Version 2.1.105 seems to fix it, but it won't update automatically as it's not reviewed by Mozilla. Visit the versions page linked above to install it.

Great - thanks for this, I was having the same issue and have just updated Delicious addon to 2.1.105 and problem solved.
