When using Firefox I am frequently interrupted by messages appearing half way down the right side of the screen saying things like "Select (this) to record your Game", "Press Windows Key to continue"etc. How do I stop this please?

This sounds like it's coming from the Windows Game Bar feature, not Firefox. Refer to How to Turn On or Off Game Bar Tips in Windows 10 or How to Disable Windows 10’s Game DVR (and Game Bar) for more information on disabling this feature.

Hope this helps.

Many thanks indeed for your help. The messages have gone. I've never heard of the Windows Game Bar and never used it. In fact I haven't played a computer game in about 25 years! Computers stress me out - everything seems to be fine and then the computer starts doing something it's never done before for no apparent reason!

Anyway, thanks again for your help Bob
