Description maison 2023-04-29 06:08:15 UTC
It becomes impossible to type character ~ in French. Instead it triggers the highly intrusive, therefore annoying side panel.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In French localisation (even with a new profile), type AltGr 2é~ key (so not the numerical keypad).
2. Optionally, check what keys are attributed to the Side panel.

Actual Results:
The side panel is triggered.
If you keep doing it, you go through a cycle of trigger and make disappear.

Expected Results:
You should be able to type a space key and get your ~ in your document. The side panel should stay away.
Optionally you may check what key is used by the side panel; by default it is only Shift F5.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
On French keyboards, AltGr 2é~ doesn’t produce an immediate result: if you follow with a letter, it would print characters like ãñ…, but if you follow by Space, it prints the ~ character.

Why does this have Hardware,OS set to All,All and which operating system and desktop environment are you on anyway?

Sounds like Compose Key AltGr followed by ~ Tilde supposed to be waiting for the next keystroke to form a composed character. Which it does for me on Linux GNOME with an English keyboard Compose Key set to AltGr. Not triggering the sidebar.

Setting to new because I see it reported in bug 145170 comment 2. 

Somewhat similar issue in bug 146906 comment 26. There are various issues with Alt Gr vs Ctrl + Alt shortcuts depending on keyboard layouts, see bug 107244.

I think this should be fixed with same fix as bug #151059
