Linked devices sometimes missing from "Send to Device" on Firefox Android

When I share a website on mobile, usually my other linked device will appear under "Send to device" in the Share menu, and I'm able to send the tab to that device with no issue. However, sometimes when I try to do this, my linked device will NOT show up; I will only see a circle with a plus sign that says "Add new device." This can happen even if the linked device is turned on and recently synced to FF (but it shouldn't matter, as I can usually send a tab to a device even if that device is not currently on). I have tried the following troubleshooting, but none of them work: pressing Sync Now in my FF Android account settings, refreshing Synced Tabs, closing the app and clearing the cache. Eventually, I'll try again and find that my linked device is once again visible under "Send to device," but I have no idea what makes it work or break.

Does anyone else experience this and/or know why it happens and how to fix it?

When browsing or playing games I get sometimes other languages when I go to websites. For instance I will go to Samsung.com and the page that opens will be a foreign language web page. Usually Spanish, but I'm not sure because I don't understand it. When playing games that are downloaded from Play Store, the ads will be in a different language. I've checked my settings in Firefox and it is set to English. I can't figure out how to get rid of the foreign language that appears.

I run ff on both desktop and mobile. I watch youtube on both. On desktop, no problems. Add ons include adbock for youtube. On mobile, I can see the thumbnails but when I attempt to play the video, I get "invalid response recieved" error message.

I've disabled the adblocking software thinking that was causing the problem, but nope. No change.

Whats up? Is Youtube attempting to force us to use their mobile app rather than accessing it through a browser?

As written, with Ff 89 beta for Android, the setting "dom.ipc.processCount" resets itself to 1 every restart.

https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/fenix/issues/19385

Can someone please explain me why? It felt much faster before with a setting of 4 or 6 and still feels faster when I set it in about:config for the time not doing a restart...what is going on here?

And why is such a change not being communicated to the community somehow and I/we have to find this out by ourself?

Greets and with best regards, Michael
