Brave browser only - Keyboard showing numbers when I type letters


#1

After downloading the Brave browser, I open it and begin to type in the address bar, and it’s populating numbers, instead of the letters I’m typing. I’ve exited/disabled, SpyShelter, and Malwarebytes, and still have the problem. I’m using Bitdefender as my only source of AV.

Also, I had to use Chrome and log-in to my Brave account that way to even type this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

WIll you take a screenshot or recording of the issue (Licecap is totally free to use http://www.cockos.com/licecap/)?

Hi @dscottie. Are there multiple keyboards installed? If its enabled then probably Brave is set with a different keyboard.
You will find the keyboard option at the task bar next to icons

Hi Suguru,

Hi Sriram,

There is only one keyboard installed. The keyboard works perfectly with
Chrome, and Firefox. But for some reason when I type letters on the
keyboard, it’s populating numbers. For example, when I type the following
on the keyboard, it populates the following:

Typing on keyboard (results in address bar): J (9), k (0), l (1), t (2), r
(3), e (4), w (5).

I’ve also included a link below with a video of what’s happening:
