My Keyboard will not work on facebook at all. It is a company Laptop, thus I do not have admin rights. My company recently installed Explorer 8, could this be a the problem?
The keyboard works fine on any other program. I have a Lenovo T410 laptop, could I have accidentally pressed a button that could have caused this?

Facebook is a problem in itself. What is it you are doing that kb doesn't work ?

We have the same problem with Facebook. This started sometime around the end of November. We use Windows XP. Suddenly we cannot type in Facebook without hitting the keys 7 or 8 times. I have found two others besides Karen with same problem, I believe it may be the result of an automatic update Windows sent down? We were out of town until Nov 7th and it was like this when we returned. No issues typing in any other program.

If using IE, try a different Browser. But the fact remains, it only happens on facebook, so also check all your account settings on FB.

I am having the same problem, since the same time - mid-end of november. Why does switching the browser "work"? I have not tried it yet, but what will it change?
