User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0

When using the Firefox browser, the cursor stops moving over and the browser 
does not recognize the arrow keys, cause the letters typed to be misordered. 
E.g. when typing "higgins for congress", it comes out "hggnis ofr"....
It's definitely not my keyboard, as Internet Explorer and other applications 
recognize and type perfectly.
I have XP Service Pack 2 on Windows XP with Mozilla 1.0. Will try to upgrade 
service packs and browser versions.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Killed broken browser
2.Restarted new application
3.Retried and after awhile it reoccured.

Actual Results:  
Happened again, but only after a few hours

Expected Results:  
Not reordered letters
