Keyboard shortcut key presses gets emitted to Webview #85879

Issue Type: Bug

When using shortcuts, while having a webview open, the shortcut's key presses ”leaks” out and are sent to the webview.


This can be reproduced using the Jupyter extension:

  1. Configure Zoom in to be just a character, say z, using the regular Shortcuts UI
  2. Create a new Jupyter Notebook and focus an input prompt.
  3. Use that shortcut

VS Code zooms, and nothing else happens.

VS Code zooms, and z is typed at the Jupyter prompt.

I am an extension author, and my extension also has a REPL Webview. Right now I have to avoid providing default keybindings with chords ending in a typeable character. This is bad, because a lot of the commands for my extension make total sense to use with chords ending in regular characters.

This is extra bad because I also have to instruct my users to do avoid chords like that, regardless if the shortcut is related to my extension or not.
