Using quotation characters like '`" results in duplicate characters in some online text editors.
On some online coding websites, for example https://playcode.io/ when I type ' followed by a vowel I get the character double up, or following the quotation I press space results in double quotation marks. I have listed some key presses below. Key press: result: expected result
<'><space> : : '_ <'><a> : áá : á <'><f> : ff : 'f <`><$> : ``$$:`$ <`><space>: `` : `_
Can I turn this off or what specifically is causing the issue? On this text field the problem does not occur, nor in Chrome or Safari.

I don't think I can test this properly with a U.S. English keyboard. Hopefully someone else can take a look.
Thanks jscher2000 for the clue.
Switching my keyboard preferences from "U.S. International - PC" to "U.S." solves the issue. How would I proceed making a bug report as the issue is only in Firefox on some websites?
BTW: The issue is only on macOS, when use the international keyboard on a PC text entry works as expected.

The US International keyboard layout on Windows uses dead keys to create accented characters, I assume this is also the case on Mac and the behavior you describe points to dead key related issues.
