You're probably fat-fingering the 'alt' key and then pressing some other random letter. Crazy shit will happen when you do that. Also, if the textbox you're trying to type into doesn't have focus and you hit backspace, you'll navigate to the previous page.

Image of problem. I was in the middle of replying to Eye Poke and well...see for yourself.
Here's another image of another odd IE thing happening when i am typing. I am pretty good at typing accurately (proper form n all) and am careful of the 'fat fingers'.

Okay I've figured it out. You have sausage fingers.

If you notice that both of the issues happen at the same time that your finger would have been on the letter corresponding to the beginning of a command prompt.

The first goes into edit, when you would have been typing the e in your sentence.
And while the second issue somehow opens into favorites, it starts with V, then goes into E, which would complete the word have. I can only assume you are typing while stoned out of your mind. Wink

No clue. I tried looking online for command prompts but the internet is so full of stupid shit trying to find anything useful is a chore. I'll keep looking.

You are pressing alt + e, which opens opens edit. I haven't figured out what you press for view yet.

Not Kidding..... but i have just physically removed the Alt key from this keyboard to see if it nukes the issue. Keep ya posted. Although my recent decision to ignore Morons on this board (ahem) may have me posting a bit less.

Well that's one way to deal with the problem lol.

What i think has happened is when you type you hit the alt key when you mean to press the space bar, then the letter.

Going on the screenshot where edit is open the letter e is the next letter in the word you were typing. So it makes sense.

Good call, I hope it's just the ALT key- seems most likely to me.
