I noticed that this is more generally when you hit `alt+shift+5` on osx atleast it just prints `fi`.

¡Hola AB!

Kindly update your Firefox 40 to 41, see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-version

I cannot reproduce this bug as described on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 ID:20151005030206 CSet: b56aeea0c4701677ffda6417183caa60d2a6a4a7

So perhaps this is OS X specific.

Could you please test on Nightly from https://nightly.mozilla.org/ with a clean profile and confirm the bug?

¡Gracias!

Hi

I tried on the nightly.  More generally this bug is that when you hit `shift alt 5` you get `fi`.  In docs that happens to also be the strikeout key shortcut so it prints `fi` striked out.  I tried in google docs, and just a few text input fields.

Thanks
