I the terminal in readonly ?

What setting did you change in the Preferences ?

Right click the terminal's main content area and see if it's marked read-only.

The Preferences changed was SHORTCUTS, changing it back corrects the problem.

Comment 4 William Rueth 2019-07-30 14:16:26 UTC
"Read-only" was not touched.

I see, ok. Can we consider this problem / mystery solved? :)

On other machines changing SHORTCUTS Preferences, simply works as it should. 
This is  a HP Pavilion g series. Need more info, just ask.

Interesting, I see.

What do you exactly mean by "SHORTCUTS Preferences"? I am asking so that we can reproduce it ourselves.

Do you mean just toggling the "enable shortcuts" check box? Or did you change the individual shortcuts listed on that page?

Were all those test machines running Fedora 30?
