    Restart - the cure to all computer ills. Something (a website?) has tricked it into thinking Right to left instead of left to right.

    I suspect one of your colleagues has tweaked something... that or you're being a spazz

    Sounds to me like you've got a Colin Hunt character nearby who has nobbled your pc with a supremely unoriginal joke program while you were getting your coffee.

    Restarting worked, should have tried that first which does mean I am a spaz for not trying it. Strangely it was only happening in Firefox; IE was working fine. I presume it is a glitch with Firefox or Jash you could be right but the only sites I have visited are this one and wiggle.

    Thanks for all the replies especially Litt, I tried turning my laptop around but that didn't help so I crossed my hands and eyes which really confused me so I turned it off and went and made a cup of tea.

    No, it is an offensive term related to an outdated way of referring to people who have cerebral palsy.

    I've had this happen in FireFox one before and I know it's happened to others as well. Think it's just a bug that crops up sometimes.

    sorry if it did offend I was using it as catch all numpty insult

    I wasn't aware of the specific link to cerebal palsy

    It makes it really awkward to type a question asking for help!
