Hi there,

After updating to version 5.9 the CTRL + S shortcut is no longer working if the keyboard language is not English.

If the keyboard language is set to English, it saves changes as usual, but If I switch keyboard language to another language (i.e. Arabic) the shortcut is not captured by WordPress, and the browser's save page as window appears instead.

Hope you fix this problem soon.
