Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

After firefox is up and running for a while, when I type too quickly it seems to miss every other key. For instance, if I type www.ubuntu.org in the address box, sometimes it only captures 'wwuut.r'.
It happens consistantly when couple of tabs (yahoo and google mail box) are open.
If I close the browser and re-open it, it seems to accept all keys strokes (www.ubuntu.org) and the problem comes back after few minutes.
I noticed that the issue is only with firefox browser. If I open a gedit, the app accepts all keys I enter.
