Hello romanf

Are you able to type text in another application? For example in WordPad, NotePad or even in the Start Menu Search box?

Can you try a different browser? If the problem only exists in Firefox, then you could try resetting or re-installing the browser.

That is not the same thing - you could perform a Clean Boot, and if no luck then try my earlier suggestions.
