Is there a solution to allow Xperia Gesture input in Firefox awesome bar?

I have an Xperia Z5 and Z1 Compact and both devices have a common issue. The keyboard's gesture input (a.k.a. swipe) does not function in certain menus, including the Firefox awesome bar. This issue has been brought up before here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/991697, and on the Sony forums here: https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z-ZL-ZR/Keyboad-Swipe-Option-not-working-on-some-apps-After-Upgrading-to/td-p/502175/page/2. There are two suggested 'fixes'. The first is to use the Xperia Chinese language keyboard in the English input mode. This does work, but disables some of the other functionality of the standard Xperia International keyboard. The other suggested fix involves typing "<char> <space> <char> <space>", but this did not work for me.

I would prefer to find a solution that allows the standard Xperia "International Keyboard" to function with the gesture input.

Note that I did attempt to turn off the "auto complete", and that did not help. I would be happy to help debugging, if ideas could be suggested. Device configurations follow. Thank you for your time.
