Control key removes selected text

Hello! I have a problem with Firefox. Whenever I have selected text and I press the control key, that text becomes unselected. Is like I lost focus of the window or the input text when I'm pressing the control key.

This is really annoying because it makes copy and paste really complicated. Most of the times I have to select the text and right click - "Copy" instead of a simple "Control + C". This only happens on Firefox, as on Chrome the control key works as expected.

I'm on Linux.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

Is there a reason for the old version of Firefox? What OS? What Desktop? Try downloading another copy of Firefox and run it from the folder. Do not sign into your Firefox account and see if you have the same issue.
