After using the save keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+s) I am unable to type in the console. Any solutions/fixes?

Saving the file on the workspace through the menu causes no problems. It only happens when I use the keyboard shortcut. I'd prefer to use the keyboard shortcut since it's muscle memory for me. I am using the web based version on Chrome browser. I feel this might more of a bug than anything. Only way to "fix" it currently is restarting the workspace. Any solutions or fixes to this problem that don't require restart?

Can someone please address this? It's also happening to me and it's super annoying.

I haven't found a fix yet but I have found a way to avoid it: When you save, make sure your cursor is active in the workspace and NOT in the console. It only bugs out if the cursor is in the console while using the ctrl+s.
