    Hmmm, I have reproduced it, from your link and my own minimal project test. I guess this is a FF bug, not C2, probably nothing can be done except FF dev address the bug.

  • yeah youre propably wright :/ had hoped its on construct because bugs are fixed much faster here then at mozilla, i always struggle to post bug reports that get recognized there

  • We haven't changed the keyboard plugin in a long time. I think this is likely to be a change in Firefox. Consider reporting it to Mozilla.
