For several months, I have been able to log into my computer, 1Password, and a number of my normal password-protected sites only sporadically. I tried all of the methods known to me, and got advice from Apple, et al. but to no avail until one guy mentioned that he heard of a firmware board associated with a laptop which seemed to have the same problem. Basically this one key - with no symmetry of occurrence - will respond with the correct key once, twice, single or double, in common with its neighbor, or not at all. Because this letter occurs within both my master computer password and my 1Password password, it has been very traumatic. Now that I know the problem, I can deal with it manually via copy/paste but this is not typically possible for passwords, especially programs which block a view of what was typed - you are left with no clue as to whether or not the problem was from mis-typing. My immediate problem is that 1PW is blocking the save within Firefox to my bank of a new PW - it's asking me to give the 1PW PW which is obscured by my attempts to "fix" it. Basically I need to stop 1PW from reacting until I get further along in the overall process, but maintain as much of the remaining data integrity as possible. How best to do this?.
