    Missing keystrokes in Gmail in IE10 while redacting a new mail


    Hi all,

    I have found a problem in my gmail account, when I am typing a new mail some of the letters just disappears and I have to rewrite them, my first gest was a failure in my keyboard but in other pages or in word works perfectly, the only information that I have found is from this link

    Any help will be appreciated.

    The same thing happens to me. I type an email, and some letters just get skipped out, as if I didn't press the keys hard enough.

    This actually happens to a lot of people on google sites and others in the way they use AJAX events. It can be "fixed" by making a registry change and then closing all IE processes/windows and then re-opening IE:
    Code:
    Key:   HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_AJAX_CONNECTIONEVENTS
    Value: iexplore.exe
    Type:  REG_DWORD
    Data:  0
    Note that the "FEATURE_AJAX_CONNECTIONEVENTS" key itself may not exist in your registry by default, so you'll have to create that key under the "FeatureControl" key first.

    Note if that doesn't work, there's a possibility this is being caused by Adobe flash - removal of flash from IE is a quick test as well.
