Hotkeys prevent you from writing comments on YouTube
Hotkeys on YouTube work even when the video window is out of focus, which makes it difficult to write comments. Each press of «f» expands/minimizes the video window, even if the focus is currently on the comment input form.
The bug appeared in one session. No extensions were installed. The latest browser version.
Other browsers are fine.
What could be the problem?

There have been quite a few reports about this YouTube issue recently.

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.
Thank you for flagging up this issue.
YouTube have looked into this and will be correcting the issue shortly.
