words disappear from Gmail drafts in German

When I use Gmail in my up-to-date Firefox under Windows 10 or Linux and type e.g. "Leser und Leserinnen", then exit the draft and reopen it, "und Leserinnen" is gone. This happens to all tested feminine forms ending with "-innen", even irregular or non-existing ones, if they follow the masculine form and " und " (both preceded and followed by exactly one space). The truncation is case insensitive, and when I type the feminine form first, "innen" will be cut, and " und [masculine]" as well. Turning off auto-correction didn't help. Also, when I send a mail containing such a double form, it arrives correctly, but in my sent mails " und [feminine]" is gone. However, when I then open "forward" or "reply" with repetition of the sent mail, the deleted words are back in place. None of this happens when I use another browser or an E-Mail client or the Gmail app on my phone, nor does it happen with other mail providers, not even when using Firefox. I know this sounds weird, as if there were an automatic "politically incorrect maker". But it is exactly what happens. I wonder if anyone can replicate the phenomenon or - even better, find out why it occurs.

Das Rätsel ist gelöst: Die Löschungen stammen vom Add-on "Binnen-I be gone". Statt nur dieses I zu eliminieren, reduziert es auch die Doppelnennungen aufs Maskulinum - ohne dass einem dies vor der Installation mitgeteilt wird.

Nach der Installation kann man in den Einstellungen die Doppelnennungen von der Streichung ausnehmen.
