Firefox 116 on PC running Win 10- garbled typing

Firefox recently updated to version 116.0 (64 bit) on my Win 10 PC desktop. Now all typing into Firefox is garbled and the letters I hit on my keyboard result in different letters in Firefox. Typing works properly in all other applications such as WORD and Microsoft Edge.

I saw that this is a known problem on one of the forum pages and that it is related to zone alarm's anti-keylogger, which I have installed. The posted solution was to disable the anti-keylogger which is not an acceptable solution since it undermines security. Disabling a security feature because of a bug that appeared in a recently updated Firefox should not even be suggested as an acceptable solution- fix the BUG!

I have used Firefox for years and want to keep using it but until this is fixed I have to use Microsoft Edge. This appears to be related to the recent update to version 116. How can I return to a prior version which I know worked? Also, when will this bug be fixed so I can return to using Firefox?

Thank you

If you use ZoneAlarm security software then this is likely a problem with its Anti-Keylogger feature. For now you can disable the ZoneAlarm anti-keylogger feature.

This is being investigated and will possibly be fixed in a 116 dot release by removing the block for icsak.dll that was initially set because of causing crashes.

Is there a way to go back to release 115, which did not have this bug, while waiting for a fix to 116? Otherwise I will have to use Microsoft Edge which I would prefer not to do.
