Backtick does not work on Firefox on Linux
The backtick key ` doesn't work in Firefox. It just doesn't react and it works everywhere else. I am on Manjaro Linux. Any idea why this doesn't work?
Ah, I had to log out in order to delete the profile folder. Else it would always get reloaded. Everything works now!Funda le mpendulo ngokuhambisana nalesi sihloko 👍 0

I can't print it on Linux Firefox 90.0.2 (different distro) either. If I try to print it, I get a tilde. I have seen this mentioned by a reddit bot so it may apply on other platforms as well.
Are you currently using a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution? Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
Try right-clicking on the arrows.
It was a KDE Plasma issue. I had to set “German (no dead keys)” in the Plasma keyboard settings. Weird that I don’t have any issues with another application.
Now I have another problem. Characters like ^ and ` are usually dead on first press so you can combina them to á, à or â etc. If I set "no dead keys" that functionality is gone in Office applications etc., which is unacceptable. I think this is a firefox issue.
Seems related to this old issue

I can set "German (no dead keys)" as keyboard map, but then I can't write á, à or â characters anymore. I think this is a Firefox issue that dead keys are not working.

That was very good work. Well Done.
