Snap Firefox 122.0-2.1 introduces weird behavior of tabulator in text boxes (Ubuntu 23.10)

Hi all,

Some weeks ago I noticed weird behavior in Firefox with regards to the tabulator key. When I pressed tabulator, it inserted an actual tabulator instead of interacting with the website/text box (either by leaving the text box and going to the next field in the website, or by nesting any un/ordered list, whenever the functionality is given by the website).

I have confirmed that this behavior was introduced in snap Firefox 122.0-2.1, since I tried reverting to Firefox 122.0-2, which was in the snap cache, and I was unable to reproduce the issue, neither in safe nor in normal mode. In Firefox 122.0-2.1 I can reproduce this in both modes. I'm running Ubuntu 23.10.

As a form of proof, please see this text, which is created by substituting space strokes by tab strokes in Firefox 122.0-2.1 (safe mode).

If I can provide any more feedback, please let me know.

Hola, mi problema es que la última versión de Firefox disponible en los snaps de Ubuntu 23.10, Firefox 122.0-2.1, tiene un error cuando interactúo con cajones de texto. Cuando pulso la tecla "tabulador", me inserta un caracter de tabulador (\t), que ni es lo que quiero, ni es lo que había hecho Firefox en un pasado. La funcionalidad deseada sería ser capaz de interactuar con la página, bien yendo al siguiente campo, o bien interactuando con el cajón de texto, por ejemplo anidando una lista de puntos (si la página lo permite). Esta funcionalidad está disponible en la versión 122.0, por lo que estoy usando esa versión hasta que este problema se arregle.

Translation: hello, my issue is that the latest Firefox version available in the Ubuntu 23.10 snap repository (Firefox 122.0-2.1) has an issue when I interact with textboxes. When I press "tab", a tabulator character (\t) is inserted, which isn't what I want, and isn't what Firefox had done in the past. The desired functionality would be to be able to interact with the website, either by navigating to the following field, or by interacting with the textbox itself, for instance nesting a bulleted list (if the website allows it). This functionality is available in version 122.0, so I'm using such version until the issue is fixed.
