Description Brad Pitcher 2017-02-12 19:51:17 UTC
After the update yesterday (2/3), epiphany 3.8.10 and some OS updates, using Shift and CTRL require double tapping. For example, if I'm doing CTRL-C I have to type C twice. If I want to make a capital letter I have to type the letter twice as well.

This appears to only affect epiphany. So CTRL-C to copy from the browser into other apps doesn't work without tapping the C key twice - same with CTRL-V or X. From Chrome to other apps or within Chrome, no problem. This most likely has something to do with the update to 3.8.10 from 3.8.5.

Seeing this in Elementary OS Loki

Can you check if it's broken in 3.18.11, please? There was a bug in this part of the code [1] that I think could have caused this. Note the 3.18.11 release was for a very important security fix (bug #752738), so you need to make sure Ubuntu and elementary update ASAP.

Indeed, it is fixed in 3.18.11, thank you Michael!
