Windows 7: Keyboard language changes, but only on Internet

Keyboard language changes, but only on Internet

I have a Norwegian keyboard installed on a Norwegian version of W7. The following happens:
1) I start laptop, go to Internet, , write something (on e.g. Facebook). No problems.
2) Visit different websites (both opened from FB and from web searches).
3) Then after a while I write on FB or on Chrome search, and suddenly the keys on my keyboard have changed so that Norwegian keys no longer enters Norwegians letters on Internet, but they continue to enter Norwegian letters in Word, Excel and other installed programs. It is only on Internet the "signes" have changed. For instance: The "(" (the shift 8 key in Norway) writes "*", and the ''-sign becomes @ sign.

How is this possible? And how can I repair this without reboot my laptop (it is very slow, uses 5 to 10 minutes to boot up again) ?

I changed my keyboard language - how?
I use shortcuts and hotkeys whenever I can. But sometimes I make a mistake somewhere and the application I'm using switches the languages, from German keyboard layout to the English layout (only the current application, not the entire OS). I have no idea which key combination causes this and how...
