Keyboard issues only on YouTube
When I am on YouTube trying to comment, my keyboard doesn't work right. Space bar becomes mute and a few other goofy things. Cannot leave spaces between words, etc. This just started today. I have a channel I work with and it was fine earlier today. Does not happen using MS Edge or my iPhone. Only my main PC, which is the one I need. Keyboard works fine in all other applications. This is isolated to Firefox use which has been my main browser for along time.
Any idea's? Please help

Update. The problem exists when I try to post on others channels/videos. If I go in to edit text in my own video's it works fine.
Meh, nix that. It's intermittent.

Ahhhh. I'll sit on my hands and stop pushing buttons then. I googled and couldn't find anything posted past 2019 and all recommending clearing ones cache. Thank you
A possible workaround for now is to write text or affected characters elsewhere (e.g. in the location bar) and paste the clipboard content in the search bar or comment field.
