I really hope someone more clever than me can help me figure this one out as it is being a real deal breaker. I am a long time FFox user and for the longest time I have just dismissed this behaviour as a network issue or something not related to the browser itself. Every now and again, when typing in a new url, Firefox simply stalls and does not connect. It does not matter what URL it is and if I close that tab and open a new one (or reuse an already opened one). The browser stubbornly is stuck in "loading" mode but in fact it is doing nothing. Sometimes closing the session (by swiping the browser up off the screen)and reopening firefox works, sometimes not so much, however, every time if I open a private window, i can access the typed URL 100% of the time. This finding tells me without any doubt that the problem is with Firefox and I imagine there is a fairly simple explanation and fix as for a top browser that is simply not acceptable. My wanderings on reddit unfortunately did not yield any positive result with people just accepting it as "quirk". My ff is up to date (114.2.0) and is running on a Samsung s21.
Thanks so much for any way out of this madness.,
