I'm having a problem with the interface, for example browsing in firefox and using the wireless keyboard suddenly the page will scroll to the bottom of the page, and fight with you as you try to scroll up with the wheel, or page up, etc.   
You can sometimes scroll back to the top using the arrow buttons, but half the time it zips back to the bottom. 

It acts as if the pagedown or end key is stuck, but they are not.  the only way I can escape it is to unplug the wireless usb dongle, re-plug it and re-sync the keyboard

any ideas ?

With it being wireless, it could be that a key is stuck, that the switch for a key is bad, or that something else in the area is broadcasting that same signal...

Try tapping each of the keys that would make the page scroll down (end, page down, down arrow, space) and then scrolling up.  If that fixes it, you either have a stuck key or a bad switch.  If it does not, then you likely have some form of interference between the keyboard and the usb dongle.
