Typed words write over letters already entered, extra lines are added. Posts don’t make sense. Have to use laptop to edit messed up posts as mobile device is compromised since yesterday’s Android update.
Maybe there’s a setting or something that needs updating?

Yeah, that part I was just being funny on and assumed was a typo. But was waiting to see just in case you might have shocked me and said it truly was a “Damsung” hahaha.
Okay, so it’s only when you’re “typing” and isn’t in how it loads then? Asking as I just visited and looked around the site to see if I could duplicate issues. Didn’t realize you were saying is typing. If you have the time, could you do a video or screenshot of it so can better understand? I’m trying to figure out if you’re saying it literally skips, if it’s duplicating what you’re writing, or the exact circumstance you’re looking at.
A lot of times it just helps to know if you tried to deactivate shields, maybe tried changing from Standard to others, etc. It’s also trying to figure out if you’re going by default settings or what it’s at. Like sometimes sites will break or have issues based on fingerprinting or if people have all cookies blocked.
This has been happening to me too and like you have all said, appears to be since the last update. I’ve noticed it only tends to happen whenever I’m typing more long form things as opposed to just a couple of sentences (which is more often than not), but it doesn’t matter what the app - messaging app, WhatsApp, FB and Messenger, Notes, other note taking apps… basically anywhere you can type. It starts off with lagging, then randomly deleting and adding words and duplicating parts of sentences throughout the text, before getting rid of the whole text altogether.
I know you mentioned only that website, but are you typing in a lot of other places? Is the only time it messes up ONLY on that website and ONLY while using Brave?
I need to be brief, so this will not be complete with answers to all the questions.
But this: “basically anywhere you can type. It starts off with lagging, then randomly deleting and adding words and duplicating parts of sentences throughout the text, before getting rid of the whole text altogether.”
I haven’t noticed this problem elsewhere, other than the Feline Diabetes forum, so that doesn’t mean it’s the only place. I should try an email… I’ll do that and see what happens when using ProtonMail. BTW, it’s not happening here!
I just tried Opera and it behaves the same. At first, I thought it was fine… and then it started up. It’s almost like when the keyboard is set on overtype ir whatever that’s called. When normally you can insert a missing letter, but then it just overtypes instead. Works fine here, though! (Of course!)
Haha, yeah. Weird. So if it’s occurring on other browsers it may not be a Brave thing. And seeing others say they had issues on their phones using Samsung keyboard, it does make you wonder. I’ve been trying to think who to tag, if anyone. But seeing how it’s intermittent, occurs on multiple browsers, and seems to only be one particular site, it’s tough. Guess let’s tag our good ole Browser Support person, @Mattches.
@SunnySky lmao, yeah, some things can sound bad. What that one is referencing is that it can save words and information for you for auto correct and all. So as you add contacts, it might access their names. The whole bit. SwiftKey is what I used for years on my Android with little to no issue, but I will admit the problem you’re having now is something I started experiencing often with SwiftKey on my Samsung Galaxy S9. No idea what was going on with it.
