Problem: I Can't type a comment in youtube without the youtube shortcut keys taking over even though I am clearly typing in the comment box. Just started today. I tried: -I restarted firefox....same thing -I turned off youtube enhancer.....same thing -I went to Chrome to test it and it did not do it there.

I am a long time Firefox user and I have never had this problem. Any suggestions? Super weird.

Yes, Reddit also is flooded with posts on this problem. (for example) Probably Google changed something and it's better to wait for a fix than to try to hack around it.
