When I am typing an address or search term in the address bar, something happens to convert fl to "I. For example, as I type netflix.com, it ends up being net"Iix.com. The address still works (I end up on netlfix) but it looks like there is a bug in how the text is rendered in the address bar. I am on Firefox 100.0.2 on openSUSE Tumbleweed

This could be a problem with ligatures and you may be using a font that doesn't support ligatures properly.

That is possible, but I haven't changed any of the settings regarding font on my computer in months, and the issue has only appeared in the past week.
