With the latest update to Firefox (116.0.1) typing anything in the search bar looks as though my keyboard is mapped to everything - every keypress does something different. This only affects Firefox, no other program behaves this way (Word, Excel, Discord, etc.).

Currently running Windows 10, AMD Ryzen 7 1800, DDR4 RAM, Malwarebytes, and ZoneAlarm Extreme Security version: 15.8.139.18543. Had to revert back to Firefox 113 to type this via downloading it via Edge.

Hi

I recommend that you update to the latest version of Firefox, but also check for any updates to ZoneAlarm.

We understand that there is an issue with ZoneAlarm which may be causing what you are seeing and that the ZoneAlarm team have released an update that should correct this.

I just force-updated ZoneAlarm and updated Firefox. The issue is still present. I disabled the anti-Keylogger in ZoneAlarm and that seems to be where the issue is stemming from. I hope there's a resolution soon between parties.

I believe that ZoneAlarm is rolling out an update very soon that should resolve this issue.
