Hi, When open popups (Extension popup) some of these have input field, like as Bitwarden which need to enter the master password, Most of time I should/need change keyboard language to write correct text/password, But when use Super+Space to change the language popup got closed and gone. I checked Chromium and it does not close the popup on something like this. Also its not specified to Bitwarden extension, these is some other extensions like Clockify, Google translate and more...

I may be mistaken, but I believe this happens because the add-ons get restarted by the browser when there's a language change so that they can change their language as well. That would cause any pages that belong to the extension to be closed.

Unfortunately, there's probably not a lot that can be done on this forum. You should probably report it as a bug using the bugzilla(dot)mozilla(dot)org website so that the Firefox developers can address the issue.

NOTE: Due to some spam on the forums, posting links is currently restricted, so I had to substitute the dots in the link with (dot) in order for the forum to allow me to post it.

Maybe switch the Linux keyboard layout before opening the pop-up.
