What keyboard setting are you using; and what character(s) appear when you seek to type the semi-colon ?

Not following you when you say:

"it disappears..." nor "I change keyboard language which changes the button, the other button does the same too! "

Could it a spell check issue? Could tthe system be automatically replacing the semi-colon with "nothing"?

I don't know where to find the auto-replace list that would impact a browser.

My laptop keyboard, a wireless keyboard and the windows keyboard software all do the same.

It's not on browsers, it's everywhere word, notepad....etc

It's very weird, I googled a lot about this and no one had this issue, I run multiple updates on windowns but still happening

very odd indeed very odd...

A long shot and a very long shot at that...

Have a look at this list of the many keyboard layouts; compare them with what you think you have. See, if per chance, you've managed (somehow) to map to one which resembles one of them; and thus not having the key assignment(s) you were expecting?

And there's a great deal of detailed information here pointing out what differs on each layout/language version etc.

Perhaps there is a running script in the background ???
Let's give a try to found it ! if it exists of course !
I invited you to check with this batch file : Just copy and paste this code with your notepad and save it as : Processes_Services_Tasks_Startup.bat and run it by double click and paste the results on the pastebin for checking it !

Another long shot... I wonder if there's a damaged dll in windoze itself and that's creating the problem?

From the behavior shown in the very helpful GIF animation,
I'd say it is either a spelling/grammar corrector or malware
toying with the user. If it was the wrong keyboard setting or
a software error, you would never see the semicolon on the
screen.

Try turning off (if it's on) the system level spellchecker.

This is what I was referring to (but didn't know about at the time) in my Response #3.

Worth a shot as a troubleshooting step.

Thanks all.... when I tried keyboard testing I got this:

So when I hit semi colon button, also the shift/ctr and back space are clicked for some reason
I disabled all spellchecker options, and it didn't help
