no @ sign in browser

hello,

i have the problem, that every time i want to enter an Email-address, the normal procedure to enter the "@" don't work. So I use the Ctrl. C + V method :-)

The problem occurs the mozilla and firefox as well.

Any input are welcome

Re: no @ sign in browser

Where is this browser running? Under Windows? Under HP-UX?

Re: no @ sign in browser

Are Web browsers the only programs affected?
Shell?

stty -a

Is this failing for command lines too? What happens when you type:

echo "this is @ symbol"

If the line is canceled then your login profile is not correctly setting the stty values. Since you mention mozilla and firefox, I am assuming you are using Xwindows so you are probably not getting a login shell and running /etc/profile where the correct stty values are normally set.

Type these two commands:

stty erase "^H" kill "^U" intr "^C"
stty eof "^D" -parity ixoff

Now try the same echo command:

echo "this is @ symbol"

This should work and now you should be able to type the @ as well as the # symbol.
