In some sites, including Google Plus, when I press the comma in the text input it displays strange characters instead of putting in the comma. This only happens in Chrome. I tried it in IE and Firefox. I think it has something to do with the fact that the site appears to use a div with javascript instead of using an actual textbox.

I am not sure what is going on. It looks like some kind of debugging symbols or something. Here is what is displayed when this happens.

Chrome version 12.0.742.122

do you have any extensions? what do your about:flags say? – Daniel A. White Jul 26 '11 at 17:21

It seems to be related with this extension. Or maybe this one. Try disabling them.

These extensions allow you to select links without using the mouse.

I'd check with your extensions and about:flags. Try disabling them all and re-enabling them one by one.
