Hello All,


This seems to be simple, but I've searched everywhere, with no luck....

I have a physical disability and I use the Sticky Keys feature of Windows.  But when I attempt to use Sticky Keys within a browser window, we run Firefox on all our computers, including our new laptop with Windows 8, the feature will not function.  I have to manually hold down, such as the Ctrl button and "A" for example, to get what I need to happen. 

I have ran into this problem before on my main computer, a old laptop running XP, with Webroot SecureAnywhere, and I solved it by turning the Identity Shield off.  I imagine that is not really a good idea but, in the end, we have to do what we have to do.....  On our Windows8 computer, however, SecureAnywhere is not even installed...so i'm assuming its a new security feature....

Anybody else have this problem?

What I would like to know is, how I turn this "security feature" off so I can use Sticky Keys in a browser window....
