Don't know if anyone has similar issues but seems cannot find similar questions asked with a lot of googling. If a service runs on windows service for linux version 2, and wsl2 has localhostForwarding set to true (default), chrome can access the webpage localhost:port but firefox cannot. http://127.0.0.1:port does not work as well. This is a pretty recent change for Firefox (started about maybe 3 months ago).

Any solutions?
