I recently bought a new mac mini. it is running os 11.12.1 and is the new mac M1 chip. I downloaded the latest version of firefox, 85.0.2 It seems to work great..... but after a few days i have noticed that when i first wake up the computer in the morning AND after i wake it up after it's gone to sleep during the day the browser doesn't work correctly. Trackpad won't scroll. Typing won't type. Clicking on a tab dosen't open the tab..... UNTIL i click on another window of the browser, then when i go back to the first window it has opened the tab i clicked on. Very odd. If i quit firefox and open it again it works. But this is not ideal.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone have a solution??

Thanks, Miranda

I'm sorry to hear you're running into this problem. We are actively investigating the issue and hope to have a fix ready in Firefox 87. You can track the work here

Unfortunately, there is not much you can do right other than restarting Firefox once it's frozen. You could also give Firefox Beta a try and see if it resolves the issue for you.
