Whenever I am pressing left alt it renders the whitefox useless. The only things that remain working are the to at seemingly random press alt tab, enter, esc. It seems to change the button layout, It's like alt is being permanently activated and the only way to stop it is to restart the computer or unpress ult from another keyboard. Bad Board or layout issue?

This other poster had a similar issue:

His problem sounded to me like a bad switch or bad solder. Or, maybe a diode is backwards in the switch matrix somewhere.

I just looked at the whitefox schematic, and I don't see any pullup (or pulldown) resistors for the switches, so it's not a missing resistor. (
