I honestly don't know what to call this, but it's the same thing as when you try to type something, it tricked me a few times to backspace and go to the previous page, I've tried ignoring it but I can't take it anymore, I'm only 14 and I just want to know how to get rid of this. I've made a GIF of what my problem is at the top of the thread, as you can see. So, uh, this is the first website that came up when I googled "windows 7 help" so I trust you guys will help me. Thanks!

EDIT: It only happens on Firefox, so is there a "text"* setting that I don't know about that has been turned on?
* = i don't know what to call it so i'm going to call it a text thing.
EDIT 2: I found it! Carat-browsing was turned on.
