I now think that at first I have misunderstood your message.

If I understand well you are not saying that this firefox version is not
accessible, rather that the first start didn't go well and somehow had
negative side effect on your keyboard's behavior.

Is that right?

For your information the Firefox we provide is just a rebuild of
Mozilla's official binary, and the same is true for the one provided by
Salix (whose full name end in gv).

By firefox-safe, do you mean staring firefox like  below?
firefox --safe-mode

@Aiyumi:do you observe the same behavior?
