IBus m17n shortcut ctrl-U to enter Unicode characters fails to override browser defaults
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

In wiktionary in chrome, when the focus is in the editbox, pressing Ctrl-U opens page source view.
In wiktionary in firefox this also sometimes happens, but the condition seems to be intermittent.

The problem doesn't occur in wikipedia in chrome. This is possibly because syntax highlighting is turned on there.

Sometimes I have to struggle to enter a UNICODE character into wiktionary because both browser open page source view.

Ideally, IMO browser shortcuts should be disabled in the editbox.
But for me, Ctrl-U is the one that causes problems.

And why is this behavior variability?

This task does not explain the expected outcome and why pressing Ctrl+U should allow entering Unicode characters (somehow).

Thanks.

This task does not explain the expected outcome and why pressing Ctrl+U should allow entering Unicode characters (somehow).

IBus's m17n engine allows to enter UNICODE characters by number after pressing Ctrl-U. The problem with this shortcut prevents this in the editbox .

So far your browser and your m17n engine have a conflict it seems. How is MediaWiki related at all here?

@Nemo_bis: MediaWiki has nothing to do with this in my understanding. If you think it has, please elaborate.
