Pointer doesn't change shape unless clicking in an option.
For some reason I got a new laptop and install the latest firefox version, however, very often happens that my pointer doesn't change according to the options I am selecting (unless I click on them). To fix it, I have to restart the browser every time. It's annoying because for example, if I select some text to copy it, it will not be highlighted until I finish (unclick), just until then it will highlight the text, but not during the process. Also, the wheel of my mouse won't scroll the page up and down when clicking at it (but I still can scroll without clicking it). All these issues get fixed once I restart the whole browser.
Any ideas? do you think by downgrading firefox this could be fixed?
Best regards, Cristhian Garcia.

What OS? What desktop? X11 or Wayland? Make sure you have ffmpegs and video drivers installed on this new laptop.
Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla. Download, unzip, and run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
