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
Brave Version( check About Brave):
v1.45.116
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. https://www.youtube.com/shorts/yL0HT0QeNeA

@gothiccharms,
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.
