Space bar scrolling down?

When I press the space bar, the page scrolls down, which is a bit inconvenient. But the real annoyance is that my cursor changes appearance. Even as I type this post, whenever I press space bar, my cursors changes to a white hand, which is very distracting. After pressing any other letter, it changes back. Basically, as I type, the cursor keeps flipping back and forth between the default image and the hand. It’s quite annoying. Is there any way to disable this, or any other sort of way around it? I’m tired of having my cursor change appearance while I type, to the point that I’d rather use a different browser.

Honestly, I’d be willing to disable every single keyboard shortcut, if that’s what it took, because this has simply grown too annoying to want to bother with.

I am using the most recent version of CID, but the problem persisted in previous versions. Oddly I didn’t seem to notice it until a few days ago, and I’m not sure what has changed, but the problem remained even after I updated the browser.

EDIT: While updating the browser did not solve my issue, restarting the computer did, so there’s nothing to worry about. Although I still have no idea why it was happening in the first place but whatever. I’d delete this post but apparently I can’t.
