    Weird Keyboard Glitch (First letter jumps to end of word/sentence)


    Dear Windows 10 forums,

    So i just re-installed windows on my computer because of an issue that I had for other reasons. It seemed to install fine.

    But here's the problem (very weird).

    As of right now, this only seems to be happening on Facebook Messenger, on Facebook.com, but for some reason whenever I send a message to someone, the first message sends fine. (This is pressing the "enter" key once, I thought maybe this would be worth noting)

    But the second message I start typing, the FIRST LETTER immediately is sent to the END of the sentence, and the message gets ruined.

    Example:

    Weird Keyboard Glitch (First letter jumps to end of word/sentence)-7f0ee0883111f8f3cd67c42f1abddb4a.png

    Also when this glitch is happening, if I hit "backspace", it jumps to the beginning of the word/sentence instead of backspacing properly.

    I've tried every single keyboard setting possible and have googled everything and cannot figure out what's going on.

    It seems to be only happening on Facebook Messenger right now so I'm not sure if it happens anywhere else. Is this a problem Windows 10? Is it a Facebook Messenger glitch?

    I also tried various browsers.

    If anyone knows what's possibly going on I would appreciate some insight, this is really frustrating me as I use Facebook.com Messenger a lot to communicate.

    P.S: The same error DOES NOT happen on http://www.messenger.com, which is very interesting. Maybe it's a Fcaebook issue? But why would this only happen after my reset of windows 10 OS?

    Thanks in advance if anyone can help me with this small, but very annoying issue.

    Regards,

    You aren't alone. The same thing just started happening to me about an hour ago on Facebook, and only on the main facebook page, not messenger.com. I did a search for the symptoms and this post came up.

    Nothing else has changed with my setup recently so I'm guessing something with the website?

    Ahh, what a coincidence that this happened right as I rebooted Windows 10.

    Looks like the Universe is trying to screw with me.

    Thanks guys.

    I guess we'll have to wait to see if Facebook fixes it, or if someone else lets us know if it's an issue regarding Windows 10.

    For now, you guys can use messenger.com, it doesn't have the glitch. That's the only thing I can suggest to you guys.

    I'm pretty sure it's just Facebook the problem and not Windows 10

    Wow thanks for this post, I thought I was going insane. Just started happening in the last couple hours to me.

    Now that I think about it, the problem started to happen after a windows driver update for Samsung USB. Did you guys by any chance do this as well? Maybe something with the driver update is affecting the coding with how facebook keylogs everything you type in messenger.

    It probably has nothing to do with Windows. I encountered this problem at work about 13 hours ago, and it was an Ubuntu.

    I also noticed it doing other weird things. If you type quickly, then select your text by pressing Ctrl-A, your text might get unselected and duplicated.

    Spoke to a friend who works on Facebook, it has been reported internally. Hopefully, they fix it soon. Chat is unusable with this bug.

    Any way you can let us know, if possible, what exactly was causing the issue.

    It's too unique to not be very intrigued.

    I know someone experiencing the issue and they have tried everything. Updating Windows, unplugging everything, etc, etc. It is still going on as of 3:24am ET. Very curious.

    Hey i am experiencing the same issues, once you write the second setence the first letter jumps to the end. This is probably an Encryption issue on Facebook's side. I did a report to them. I strongly suggest you guys do the same.
