Also lost this function as of 109.0.5414.75 (Official Build) (64-bit). Alt + left arrow works in Chrome, but not in other apps where backspace is the only option.

The extension worked until updating to Chrome 109.0.5414.74. Now it stopped working :( It now fails with event.path being undefined in the Content script on these two lines: // Overcomes issues with custom elements wrapping INPUT const target = event.path[0];
