I've started noticing most of the time now that shutting down or restarting my Arch Linux system likes to take an extra couple minutes. When checking journal logs I find some lines indicating Firefox failing to stop. More specifically, these few lines below

Dec 03 03:18:02 yelo-archlinux systemd[3218]: app-gnome-firefox-4236.scope: Stopping timed out. Killing.

What might I be able to do to troubleshoot this problem?

I am not currently at the system in question, however I will try to share its troubleshooting data as soon as I can. It was installed via pacman and the system uses Gnome as its desktop environment.

Here's my system's troubleshooting data. I've switched to the snap version to see if anything changes but the same problem occurs.

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla and run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
