Youtube typing function mixed with hotkeys

more options

Hi, I just got a problem, and I have no idea if it is on Firefox, Youtube or something else, but I need to start somewhere, and I guess it might be Firefox, because I don´t have this problem with other browsers.

I can´t use Youtube properly anymore. Every time I want to type something on Youtube, for example in the search bar or in the comment section, it gets mixed up with the hotkeys. For example, pressing "t" gives me a "t" in text, and it moves the video into cinematic mode at the same time. Pressing "i" gives me an I in a text field, but also puts the video into miniplayer mode at the same time. Spacebar however doesn´t give me a space in text, but only pauses the video. To type something, I need to open a word document, and copy paste it into youtube, because I can't properly type on the Youtube website properly anymore.

I tested the same keyboard on a different browser on a different computer. Then it works fine. So I think either it is my computer, or the Firefox browser.

Yepp, but I want to continue with Firefox and not change to Chrome, so... they don´t get me.
