the problem is the same on all i3 forks i can install from arch repos and AUR, when i open spacefm or chromium on Pi or i5, (did not remember on celeron) i have to press Super + shift + c to have control of keyboard for spacefm otherwise i cant use arrows keyboards to move between directories (spacefm is a file manager). Using chromium if i dont press Super + shift + c i cant use menu mouse in the window, the right button menu, is impossible to select something, the flickering of menu window is to high i cant read the options.
