Keyboard errors in news chat rooms only

My keyboard and computer are fine. Every website I visit in Firefox works great...except news chat rooms. If I make a comment on a news site (e.g., foxnews.com) I can type the first word with no problem. I hit the space bar and it spaces correctly. However, when I type the first letter of the second word, the letter appears BUT IT BACKSPACES AND ELIMINATES THE SPACE. If I want to type "That is not..." I get "Thatisnot..." (When I enter the i and n, it backspaced.) As you can see from this post, it's not my keyboard. I can post my thoughts in Word and paste the entry onto the news site just fine.

It's related to Firefox, because if I switch over to that god-awful Edge, it doesn't happen. Any ideas?
