Still missing the first letter
My mac sometimes misses the first letter or dumps the first letter typed into the middle of a word. Its diving me crazy. I did some research and it seems people were moaning about this in 2006. Surely it's been fixed by now!
Let's say I am about to type the word Rabbit I'll often get "abbit" or even worse "abRbit" Where by its remembered the first letter typed and dumps it anywhere into the word when it's woken up. Anyone know what I can do to stop this happening?

Use to happen on my 2007 MacBook pro. Seems to be some software bug as I had the keyboard replaced twice on that model! Funnily I get similar problems in my iPad with Bluetooth keyboard, but not when I try it with a different make one, so hmm could be OS or hardwar!

Sorry to bump such an old thread, but did anyone ever find a solution for this? It happens on my Early 2011 MBP with Yosemite, with both the internal keyboard and a newish "flat" Apple USB keyboard.
I've found a firmware update that claims to fix the problem, but it only works on 2007 and earlier machines.
Edit: I most frequently run into this in the Messages app, and I've managed to figure it out
If Messages is not the active app, then I can click in the reply box and type, and it'll get all keystrokes. However, if I just click in the message area instead, then it loses the first character. Now I just need to train myself to click in the box (although I'll log it as a bug).
