Jumpy Keyboard

Hi all,
just upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 and my keyboard is "jumpy". I'll be typing (I use mostly web based apps using Firefox) and it will jump to the beginning of the page or a random spot. I have seen this behavior in Gmail, and even while typing this message

Let me know if someone has any suggestions.

thanks
