Summary0002642: Faulty text input
DescriptionWhile attempting to type in any textbox in browser, I get strange symbols that do not correspond to keyboard mapping at all.
(QWERTY layout)
-_ - 1/2
,< - 1/4
.> - 3/4
`~ - A with grave accent

...and so forth.
Shift key does not work for these characters.
Actually, shift does not even trigger alternate alternate characters for 1-0 keys above the letter section.

The strange characters inputted into the textbox also also introduces an offset to typing caret. All characters following offending one are hidden behind strange whitespace(until redraw of region).

Amusingly, the address bar takes input correctly.
Additional InformationUsing nightly 4572, but bug is present in 3.8 and 3.6 releases as well(and probably older). 3.7 just crashed, so I didn't test it.
TagsNo tags attached.

I have resolved the input code and now any input will work.
Clipboard operation within browser windows has also been fixed.
