VERY frustrating . then i can be much more productive. just intalled Fedora 11(x86 64). no other OS. acer aspire desktop x1200. let me know what other info you need. if im not to dizzy ill try to provide it

Check if the Page down or Space key is stuck.

Does this happen in other apps as well? Check in any text editor.

i was using the GUI to ad some software and it does the same thing while trying to use the list of available programs. so its not just in firefox that it does it.

I think we can conclude it is a hardware problem. The only option is to change the KB and see.
