Any shortcuts involving Shift don't work. My main usecases are Shift+Enter for a newline in any multi-line textfield (Slack, Workflowy, Facebook, etc) and Shift+Tab in Workflowy, but I'm sure there's more.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to with Javascript turned on
  2. Put the cursor on any line
  3. Press Shift+Enter

Expected behavior:
Cursor goes to the node's sub-note

Actual behavior:
Another node is inserted as a sibling

Also try Tab for indenting a node (turning it into a child of the node above) and Shift+Tab for de-denting a node. The latter doesn't work for Tor Browser.

Also compare with vanilla Firefox behavior, where everything works as expected.

This is not a Workflowy issue, the same problem arises on many other websites, for example Shift+Enter in this example: (make sure to turn javascript on)

Tested in Tor Browser 6.0.6 on Windows 7 (as well as on Debian Linux by someone on IRC)
