In Firefox, the mouse becomes partially unresponsive to elements in the browser and on web pages. This happens after 15-30 minutes after starting up the browser. Common symptoms include:
- Unable to drag and drop elements properly, including text after highlighting it. - Sometimes, the mouse continues to hold elements while dragging. Pressing ESC temporarily fixes this. - Dropdown menus on websites do not drop down when hoovering over them - Other items on websites don't display items when hoovering over them
I have tried:
- Different mouses, including my laptop's trackpad - A Firefox fork, namely Waterfox, but it still occurs - Limited testing with other browsers. No problem occurs - Limited testing on desktop. No problem occurs - Entering Troubleshooting Mode on Firefox - Clearing cookies and cache - Reinstall Firefox (including installing from command line instead of the snap store) - Updated Firefox - Refreshed Firefox - About:Processes doesn't show anything using more than 10-15% of CPU at any one time - Limited testing with a new Firefox profile. No problem occurs - Disabled WebGL and Hardware Acceleration.
Temporary fix: Restarting Firefox, but the problem re-occurs shortly after use.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
