A solution to the same problem was found in the following thread but that was in 2019. Security software may have changed something. Try entering about:policies in the address bar and, if something is there, post it here.

You can try to disable the accessibility services.
You can check the connection settings.
- Settings -> General -> Network: Connection -> Settings
If you do not need to use a proxy to connect to internet, select "No Proxy" if "Use the system proxy settings" or one of the others do not work properly.
See "Firefox connection settings":
Do you have enabled "Resist Fingerprinting" if you check this pref on the about:config page?
- privacy.resistFingerprinting => false
Yous posted this thread while using this as your browser UserAgent : Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/58.0.3029.110 Safari/537.3 Edge/16.16299
Were you indeed using the Firefox 112.0 web browser on addons.mozilla.org ?
Yes, I was using 112.0.2
You've modified your useragent. Enter about:config in the address bar and find the general.useragent.override preference. It should be deleted.

Do you have an extension that modifies the user agent as having a MS Edge user agent is highly unusual ?
Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support to see if that has effect.
