Bug Description

As the title says. Those keys work fine in the address bar, but not in any text fields inside the website. With a german layout I can't type things like ~ \ { } [ ] etc.

In addition to what described in description, I also experienced that sometimes altgr gets enalbled like a sort of lock,so any key I press results in a key+altgr combination being triggered.

I have yet to figure when this happens.

With the Italian layout I can't use neither the 'at', nor the 'hash' sign.

This looks quite similar to bug #1433138.

In the Italian keyboard I can't type the following (among others): @#[]{}«»`~ which are quite common symbols.

In bug 1565236 I'm not yet convinced that if a Mir fix is required or exists that we have released it yet. That fix was targeted for Mir 0.24.0 which is not released yet. But also there's no concrete evidence of a Mir fix existing either.

I think webbrowser-app (Ubuntu) state should be changed because it does work in it.
