@Vssun: Any specific browser? Can't reproduce it in Chrome.

The bug 50507 is very much related to this. There, the reporter says that the characters ്, െ etc are not allowed to type.

Here the case is different but the characters are same. Characters, ി, ് and േ (the vowel symbols of malayalam, which are joined together with preceeding consonants) are disappearing when pressing the backspace.
