[ubuntu] Flash games and arrow keys

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have been using Ubuntu 12.04 for about a month now, and enjoy it immensely. However, when playing flash based games in firefox, I am having a problem with the arrow keys. A key will act like it is still being held down after I have released the key. It seems to happen when the opposite direction key is hit while holding down a key - i.e. when pressing the up arrow, and the down button is hit - if the up arrow is released, it will keep scrolling up - until the up key is hit again. It will then go back to working correctly. But then it gets weirder. The arrow key then turns into a pointing fin (Hardware)
