Keyboard disabled by 'Enable auto-fill on page load'

I’m using Bitwarden free on my Windows laptop, via the Edge browser extension. I have the ‘Enable auto-fill on page load’ option ticked. It all works fine, but after I’ve launched a number of web pages with Bitwarden, and it’s auto-filled the login info, I’m finding that the keyboard is partially disabled - I can’t type any characters although the function buttons such as Home, Delete etc still work. The only way I can get the keyboard to operate again is to reboot. I’ve had the problem on two different laptops - an old HP and a new Lenovo.
I’d appreciate a fix in an upcoming release - thanks.

Software versions in use:

  • Bitwarden browser extension for Edge: 1.49.0
  • Edge browser: 90.0.818.41 (Official build) (64-bit)
  • Windows 10: Home edition, 10.0.19042 Build 19042.
