Unable to type certain characters when using chrome

today i guess i accidentaly press some funny combination of button and result is, i can't write certain characters when using chrome.

I have czech keyboard layout so i have different characters instead of numbers on english layout (1234567890 goes to +ěčř). Somehow, when i press this buttons, nothing is written (not even numbers). But when i press same button when active office or mozilla it goes normally. And i even can read or copy&paste "missing" characters when using chrome.

I have spent last hour trying to find out if i didnt accidentaly press some shortcut, but unsuccesfully...

and yes, i tried turn it of and on again

Do you know what is wrong? thank in advance
