Public bug reported:

Some week ago I started to have issue with Gmail, in Chrome.

When I write something in the search bar it autocomplete, but then I hit
"ENTER" and nothing happens.

I know, this doesn't sound like an Ubuntu issue, but I don't give up on
me, I'll show you why I think it is.

I thought this was an issue with Gmail website, but after a couple of weeks 
without any change I decided to investigate.

If I change the layout of my keyboard from "US, with italian letters" to
"US" the Enter key works without any problem.

When I change it back to "US, with italian letters" it stop working

ENTER key works everywhere else, even inside Gmail website, which makes
the issue even weirder.

I'm not alone in this as you can read here:

and here (on Firefox apparently):

Apparently many people experiencing this with whatsapp webchat too, I
don't use it so I don't know.

I've tried with Firefox too: the Gmail search apparently works, but when
you login pressing enter after writing the password has no effect, you
need to click the button (or change keyboard layout)

I've no idea what is causing this, it's probably a mixture of website issue and 
Linux / Gnome / Ubuntu issue: but I know none of my coworker with Mac and 
Windows are experiencing any issue on any browser, so I think the problem is 
mainly an issue with Ubuntu.
