Cannot Alt+Shift to switch language input in firefox?

Hi, I downloaded the newest version of Firefox, but then cannot change language input with Alt+Shift (i.e. swapping between MS English and MS Chinese input).

I can still swap languages via Alt+Shift in other programs, such as notepad or MS words, so I assume it's not an issue with windows (I did just upgraded to Win10, then installed new Firefox).

Any suggestions?

Edit - I can swap back and forth between languages in other programs, but in FF I can only swap back to English with Alt+Shift but not back to other languages.

Thanks Joel

The default key combination to rotate the layout is the Ctrl+Shift or Alt+Shift combination that is used in Firefox for menu items, so it is possible to change the layout accidentally. To avoid an unintentional switch, assign a specific key sequence (Alt/Ctrl+Shift+number) to select each keyboard layout and remove the key combination to rotate layouts (Alt+Shift or Ctrl+Shift).
