OK, This Is Not unny


By Q-Bert - Posted on 15 December 2015

So, I need help from the Mac heads here. My capital-f key is not working when I am in Safari.

But your lowercase f key seems to be working fine. Yeah, I know. And the cap-f works fine when I am in other applications, or even in the Safari URL bar. I don't remember when this started, but it has been months. I am reduced to being a typographical Porky Pig:

"uture posts will be ignored" Dammit. "Your posts will be ignored in the future..."

It only happens when I am entering text in Safari form fields, like comments to HoC. How many HoC post have I wanted to reply with "uck off", but I cannot.

Anyone have any ideas where to start looking ?

You could try to be a big more creative.

Last night, my keyboard went awry,
So I could not Tap.

It's not unny, it's hilarious! I have never heard of anything like that, but it doesn't surprise me that if it could happen it would happen to you.

Did you Google it?

To google it properly!

Disable extensions, a check to see if you mapped the capital F key to something else. Or maybe something else mapped the key to something else.

But the real question is, who is the genius that set such a terrible keyboard shortcut in the first place?

None of the rest of us got that because we wouldn't have done it in the first place.

My bet is Revek has had previous experience.
