I ran into a problem the other day with Moz where the I could click and
scroll with the mouse as much as I wanted, but as soon as I used the
keyboard, whether to type in the URL bar or a text form, or even the arrow
keys to scroll, Moz would completely freeze up on me for about 3 minutes.
Once it came back, everything worked fine until I restarted Moz. Turns out
it was an issue with "Find As You Type". Turning that off (In
Preferences->Advanced->Keyboard Navigation) fixed the problem. Not exactly
the same problem you're having, but they may just be related...
