Hello! I'm new to Linux so my question is probably both stupid and annoying. I apologize in advance.
Since I installed Ubuntu, I've been having some problems with my keyboard, especially while running Firefox. I'll be typing away like normal when suddenly my computer will insert the URL for a website I've visited recently (but haven't ctrl c-ed), move my cursor to somewhere else on the page, delete a huge chunk of text... It's like there's hot keys I don't know about. Sometimes, my keyboard will stop responding entirely. This goes away when I reboot but the annoying typing problems are always there.
This problem didn't exist when I was running Windows but it does exist on my boyfriend's laptop, which is also running Ubuntu. Therefore, I can be reasonably sure it's not a hardware problem. Any help at all would be appreciated. Thank you!
