Error Sound When Typing

This may be me nudging the mouse with the side of my arm causing loss of focus up to the menu, but when I type in the URL bar or elsewhere, I'm getting a warning tone as though characters aren't being recognised. It only seems to happen in the browser, not other applications. Also in Facebook, the cursor disappears sometimes when I click in the comment panel, but characters still appear as I type. I have to close the comment editor and reopen to make the cursor appear.

The warning sound is from Windows presumably. This doesn't happen for every character, only sometimes. It doesn't happen with other applications.

I cleared the cache and deleted the Firefox cookie, but this didn't help. The problem only happens when typing the first character in a panel on any website (not just the URL bar). It always seems to be the first character that's rejected as though there's a delay recognising it. Then when that key is typed again, it keeps working.

I've eliminated the possibility of loss of focus due to inadvertently moving the mouse cursor to the menu bar or taskbar. The issue still happens without doing this.

The latest version, 111.0 64 bit appears to have fixed this bug.
