Here's a weird problem that seemed to occur out of no where: I just installed the latest firefox update. Now, it seemed a lot of people are finding errors in it when I checked out the support forum, but no one had the same issue as me, which was that my Ctrl + F key command, to bring up my "find" bar, would no longer display unless I hit the combo about 8 times. I was pretty irritated but discovered that "Ctrl + G" brought up the find bar to "find last", so it works just as well...
Then, I went to play the Sims. I was going to bring up my cheat box, (ctrl + shift + C) but it wouldn't work! I went on a support site to see what might be the problem but the suggestions didn't apply to me.
Someone on Yahoo Answers suggested another person having the same issue use the ctrl button on the opposite side their keyboard, which I tried, and it worked.
So that's two programs now where using my control button doesn't do what it's supposed to.
I don't get it.
Further, the control + another key function is fucking up in more ways than one. ctrl + f is completely unattainable but using that control for things like copying and pasting works fine... The other control (right side of the keyboard)+ f works. It makes NO sense at all.
ETA: Things I've tried...
-Uninstall/reinstall the keyboard driver
