Recently my arrow keys have been acting odd. I go to a page, scroll down, but it instead scrolls through tabs.

It stays like that for a few minutes, then it's okay.

Any idea why and how to fix?

I've had that same issue as well. I just decided to get used to using the mouse wheel.

I don't use a mouse. I'm on a laptop so use this annoying little touchpad. Can't use a mouse if I wanted to (long story I won't bore y'all with).

There has to be something we're doing. I swear I just hit the down arrow after typing and just letter keys. It doesn't happen always, just intermittantly, but is annoying.
 
Will be back after I eat then reboot and hit F8 Safe Mode with Networking ... but this happens once in a while so rebooting won't help at this time. I'll have to wait until it happens, then F8.

Been 4-5 days since it last happend
 
Well, it hasn't happened since I posted! But when it does, I'll reboot and see if it fixes it.
