I'm on Debian Bullseye XFCE. Please find the relevant details of my system below:

vrgovinda@krishna:~$ uname -a
Linux krishna 5.10.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.46-5 (2021-09-23) x86_64 GNU/Linux
vrgovinda@krishna:~$ type -a falkon
falkon is /usr/bin/falkon
falkon is /bin/falkon

I installed falkon yesterday, checked some websites, changed some settings regarding privacy and appearance and restarted the browser. Since then, I am unable to type or use keyboard shortcuts. I have tested the keyboard in other applications. It works fine.

Then, I purged falkon including the directory falkon in ~/.config/falkon and re-installed it. Everything is reset and fresh, but the same problem continues.

Could it be a problem with some Qt library files?

Please help.

After many purge-install cycles, everything works fine. My question is solved.
