The URL bar will stop working about once an hour, it still makes the touch animation but I can't type in an address or open new tab unless i long press and click new tab that way, the ellipsis menu will open but only add-on buttons work everything else doesn't do anything besides the animation, it has crashed after doing this multiple times but not anymore, currently in nightly 2011130 17:01. The webpage seems to work just fine and even the readerview toggle works.

It seems to happen randomly but every time today it happened when i clicked on the search widget, I don't know how to reproduce it other than make searches using the widget for a couple hours. It makes the browser pretty annoying to use. To fix it i have to open a new tab or open a add-on or start a new search with the widget or remove app from memory.

Here is a bug report. https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/16807
