Backspace use on facebook scrolls the page

Description of the issue:
if I am on Facebook and go to comment on a post, if I have to use the backspace button it will send the post offscreen and I have to scroll up to see what I have typed.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. log into facebook, comment on a post and hit backspace

Expected result:
I expect it to delete the last keystroke instead of it scrolling off screen

Additional Information:

Never seen this before. Try on 1.45.118, does it still happen?

If so, are you using any extensions?

I noticed last night that it sometimes happens when I am typing as well. It’s really odd.
The only thing I am using is SavvyConnect by SavvyShares

I would most certainly start by disabling that extension and see if the issue still occurs.

If it does, see if the issue still happens if you create a new profile and try it in that profile. (Make sure your original profile does not have any open windows; only the new profile should be open.)

I’d be wondering at that point if it’s some other software on your computer getting involved, but we can start here.

Agreed with @JimB1. Additionally, if removing the extension doesn’t work, I’d be very interested to see a short screen recording of the behavior if you’re willing to provide one.

Sorry the video is shaky. As soon as I pressed r the screen jumped. Scrolled up and typed. There at the end I hit the backspace button and it jumped again. I’ve tried this with the extension turned off and nothing changed.

Apologies for the late reply here.
Would you mind testing this behavior in a Guest/Private window and tell me if you get the same behavior there? I’d recommend keeping your extension(s) disabled either way when performing this test.
