    Keyboard favorite keys not working properly


    I have just got a new computer with Windows 8.1. I use Firefox and a Microsoft digital media pro keyboard which has 5 favourite keys they are assigned to web pages. I have been using these previously on XP with no problems at all. Now they are very very slow to respond. The other hot keys work ok.

    Is there a separate software program that does the keys? If so I'm thinking running it in XP compatibility mode might help.

    Or look for a newer version that supports Windows 8.
