There's a new (fixed) Chrome update available now on the play store ;)
I do not think that update addresses this issue. They are expecting a hotfix hopefully next week.

Mea culpa! I forgot I'm a beta tester. Still good news though, the fix is on it's way! :lolsign:
It's a bit of a situation though isn't it?

I am having none of the issues on my phone. I am not complaining but I wonder why I am not having any problems if everyone is. Probably just jinxed myself :/

It's an issue between Chrome and Gboard (the Google keyboard). The issue only happens when you use both together on Android.

I don't have the backspacing issue but do have the disappearing keyboard when I hit enter.

Technology is fun :p

It's definitely a weird one you have to agree. No matter what I do I can't replicate this fault, but reading through the messages could this be a Samsung issue? I have to ask because I'm on an Xperia and don't get this no matter how hard I try.

No as firefox on android is suggested as a solution. Once out of xenforo it's all kinda beyond my pay grade, and well... I'm self taught and unpaid so...

What I know is all I know. It is a chrome issue with android. Something low level changed in the 85 update that caused a pretty substantial issue to a affect a large number of applications. Switching browsers is a solution. Some say switching to Gboard is a workaround. It is a confirmed bug and from what I know Chrome is working on a hotfix.

I'm on a Google Pixel 3, so not just a Samsung issue

I get it occasionally now, on an Xperia using Firefox with SwiftKey. Fine after clearing the cache.
Firefox and Chrome always seem to be playing catchup with each other, so maybe FF have copied a code error.

Mine still does this on mobile (Chrome), so I try not to do much posting from there if possible.

I still get odd typing issues every now and then. Disappearing characters and keyboard, issues adding smileys with text, just weird stuff. I have been uninstalling and reinstalling SwiftKey when it happens. No amount of cache clearing has helped, but it's worth a try. I rarely use my computer anymore, and between the upgrades and quirks of the phones I've had it can do funny things.

I like the uninstall/reinstall method for now.
