    When trying to use the slide out keyboard on my Droid 2, select letters now launch apps. This only started happening since the update, and I can't find a setting to stop it. I don't need to be in a text box, the apps even launch from the home screen.

    These are the affected keys:
    L - Launches Google Calendar
    P - Launches "Music Player"
    G - Launches "Gmail Inbox"
    B - Launches "Web Browser"


    This is driving my crazy, as I'm now forced to use the touch screen to type (or I forget and launch a bunch of apps).

    Please help!

    Hi there,

    I've figured out a very primitive solution to this. I have a Droid Pro and I'm able to hide the virtual keyboard by pressing on the back touch key (the one that has something similiar to a U-turn sign). I need to do it everytime the keyboard pops up but good for me for now.

    Hope it works for you as well.

    Thank you!!!!

    The problem stopped for a while, but has recently resumed. This solution helped me to clear out the shortcuts, and resolved the issue. Thank you so much!
