Replying to cypherpunks:

I use QWERTZ layout and I use integrated laptop keyboard.

but it works for shortcuts(copy, paste, new tab,...)

Enter key working too?
Can you test keyboard with changed javascript.use_us_english_locale pref?
Open Notepad and type there:

about:config
javascript.use_us_english_locale

Copy/paste "about:config" to browser and open it (agree to process warning)
Copy/paste "javascript.use_us_english_locale" to "Search:" field and press enter.
Toggle "javascript.use_us_english_locale" by mouse's double-click to value "true" to change it to "false"
Close browser. (you can to verify keyboard right then, but check it after restart for sure)
Start browser, again.
Don't restart.
Verify keyboard.

Keyboard started working on its own. I restarted laptop yesterday several times and keyboard didnt work. I opened TB today and tried it just out of curiosity and it worked without reboot or changing anything. I have no idea what went wrong yesterday.

In case it will happen again, could be related to AV software or Security software update.

I don't think Windows 10 is a good choice for activities requiring Tor because espionage is now the integral part of it.
