Keybaord ceases to work after image is added

When I paste or drag and drop an image from Firefox, after that, my keyboard ceases to function. What I do most of the time is to add the card and then edit it in the browser.

This also affects the browser not only the "Add" window. Which means I have to change card and come back.

* Sway 1.2
* Anki Version 2.1.9 (ae67c976) Qt 5.12.0 PyQt 5.11.3

    If anki looses focus and gains it again it has the same effect as changing card.

    It also only seems to happen on large photos.

    I've had this problem when drag and dropping a tab (from Firefox to Firefox) which suggests this problem is not due to Anki.

    However I haven't had this error many times so I will leave this up until it is clearly reproducible.
