Firefox 17 tab key doesn't work

Suddenly, my tab key does not cycle through fields in Firefox 17. No idea why, but I have to click on each field, which is getting annoying. This doesn't seem to be a problem with Chrome or IE 9.

Any thoughts?

There have been a few examples of where an addon has caused this and similar problems. Try disabling all extensions and see if that helps.

Not sure what it was, but I did what you said, and it worked. The thing is, that now that it's worked, the problem seems to have gone away altogether. I've shut it down again, and restarted NOT in Safe Mode, and it all seems to work properly. So... Thanks!
