    what browser are you using? If it is the default browser, it may be because it is by default in mobile mode. Try a different browser that supports desktop mode. Also, you may want to turn plugins on instead of on demand. In some cases, it is the implementation of Java or a propietery plugin that is the issue and in that case, you will not be able to use the tablet for that site.

    Which tablet?
    What android version?
    Stock or rooted?
    Stock keyboard?

    Did you:
    Try a different browser?
    Try a different keyboard?
    Clear cache and data for the effected keyboard?

    More info will help us to help you... :thumbup:

    Did you try settings/apps/all/(keyboard name) - clear cache - clear data?

    Otherwise, Try Hackers Keyboard (free from the PlayStore).

    Worst case, may be due for a factory reset. It'll take you back to out of box stock, blank slate condition. You can then reinstall just the apps that you use daily (or frequently) and have a less cluttered (in more ways than one) device.
