rather than in a new tab both in firefox and chrome even though i double checked all the settings in "options", on top of that, everything i type all become in caps regardless if the "caps lock" is on or off. I tried restarting the computer, it worked fine for a while, but before long, the issues all come back again.
Do I have a virus or bug of some sort?

If you are using "Teh Google" there is another setting in your search settings that if checked (enabled) will "Open each selected result in a new browser window" (attached png)

Dunno about the other issues. (caps lock, virus?) :blink:

no, i don't use that, it's kinda bizarre, when it happens, i'd close firefox and try to restart it, then i'd get a message saying "firefox is now running in safe mode, blah, blah," when it's still in normal mode. that's when i'd restart the laptop, then, like i said earlier, it'd work fine for a few hours before the same issue occurs again< AND THE NUMERIC KEYPAD WOULD STOP WORKING AS WELL LIKE RIGHT NOW

Sounds like your Shift key is stuck. Shift + left-click opens links in a new window. That would also explain the phantom CAPS.
