Some actions happen twice?

I have Manjaro (duh) Gnome, the most recent update as per today 18/11/2022, and ever since I updated my devices, some actions happen twice when I do them.
For example, if I press Super to search for Spotify, when I press “s” once, “ss” appears in the searchbar, but it’s only sometimes & only if I was not previously on the searchbar already.
Now I noticed that also clicking on links, sometimes, opens the same tab twice.

I cannot yet seem to notice a patterns, but will update this post if I see it.

Oh, this is not the post I was referring to, as the one I first saw mentioned a single command which listed everything (or the vast majority of things) one may need, but thank you, I’ll run these & post the results :).

**Edit
So Sorry! It was the very first one I seemed to skip through :sweat_smile:
