    Hello again,

    After I performed a Flash player downgrade on my MacBook because I couldn't see some games, I noticed (and I don't know if it is even related to the problem) that I can't type the @ anymore on firefox. When I do it, it takes me to the next open tab.

    I can type it in Chrome and in any other program such as word.

    Any ideas???

    Thank you!!!

    This is almost certainly caused by an about:config setting in Firefox. It's going to be a pain to track down this setting, since you can't type the character you're searching for. You should be able to type it elsewhere and paste it into a search box, though, once on the about:config page.

    Thank you!

    I discovered it was one of the FF addons, I disabled them all and enabled them one by one, and now it's working perfectly.

    Thanks for helping!
