Weird problem - typing anything into the post/reply box opens "Enter the URL" window
My computer is currently on the fritz - I'm hoping the problem is the cooling unit, since the CPU goes up to 80°C within minutes of starting the computer. I'm now waiting for the new cooler to arrive - but before I switched off the computer for good, it behaved weirdly on the Penny Arcade forums (for about two days - it's possible that the CPU was already getting fried, but the issue didn't arise anywhere other than on PA).
What happened - and only in Firefox (64-bit) - is that whenever I wanted to reply to a post or use the Quick Reply box, the moment I clicked in the editor box and pressed any key, the "Enter the URL" window would pop up. In addition, the editor box would add the BBCode for bold, italics and underline where I'd clicked.
Accessing PA from Internet Explorer worked without any problems, and using Firefox from another machine worked perfectly - it was just the combination of the PA forums and Firefox (and possibly my overheating CPU).
The issue seems so completely random that I thought I'd ask whether anyone has any idea what was happening there. I'm hoping that the new cooler will resolve both the CPU overheating and possibly the Haunted PA Forum Syndrome as well, but just in case, if any of you have a clue what the problem might be, please let me know.
P.S.: I'm half-suspecting my computer's going on the fritz completely, seeing how the overheating and the weird, random PA problem started happening at the same time. That would suck in major ways, though...
