Hi,

I feel like the proverbial village idiot. Somehow the On-screen
keyboard got turned on with both FF latest release and FF nightly. Can
someone put me out of my misery please? How did this happen? How can I
disable it? I have tried setting
"services.sync.prefs.sync.ui.osk.enabled" to false but that doesn't
work.

Thanks,

George...

Never seen this before but maybe this as something to do with it in:
Tools/General/Browsing there's an option to "Show touch keyboard when
necessary"

The onscreen keyboard problem is back.

Does anyone know how this is triggered?

Aren't there "three" config settings involved?

Meaning that something from the replies to your other post worked and
now isn't, or was never solved?

What version of Firefox on what operating system?

Have you tried safe mode using Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled?
Assuming that you are using a version where that hasn't been changed to
Help > Troubleshoot Mode.
