Random extreme keyboard & typing lag

Yo, Linux sysadmin here and been using Firefox forever.  Surprisingly I have this ancient 12 year old System76 laptop that I use for nearly everything (got a newer Lenovo that I been meaning to switch to but no time).

Using Debian 12/13 with Gnome 43.6/X11.  Can't quite figure out this issue though.  Besides being a sysadmin, can have other side jobs/projects going on as well, so can have 5-10 windows open in different workspaces, sometimes with hundreds of tabs all together (big fan of the Auto Tab Discard add-on and about:memory Minimize Memory Usage to keep performance up and resource usage low).

Been noticing this issue for the last few versions where suddenly, after random amount of Firefox uptime (can be after days of perfect performance) my keyboard input aka typing gets extremely laggy, like 30 seconds behind for all keystrokes, except: Ctrl-F instantly brings up the Find in Page bar, and Ctrl-C instantly copies to clipboard.  Ctrl-V, however, 30 seconds lag, Ctrl-A also....  Mouse is fine though and can right-click and paste instantly or use other menu options.  Happens anywhere in Firefox too: in address bar, in the find text box, in the preferences, in my saved passwords, haven't found a place with no lag.

Have searched around for some hours now and only found suggestions to disable accessibility service, but accessibility service has already been disabled for a while now.  Everything else in my Gnome desktop session is running fine.  Restarting Firefox temporarily solves the issue but is highly annoying and interruptive with as much as I have going on sometimes.  Due to timing randomness, starting Firefox without certain add-ons is impossible as I can't spend days at a time without any of them.  Just have to open a text editor and type what I need to in there, then paste with mouse, until I can find a good stopping place to restart Firefox.

Have included most of the info from about:support in the Troubleshooting Information.  Spent quite a bit of time looking at all my modified preferences, nothing popped out but if there's something you think I could include to help, let me know. Thanks

All downloads "fail" using Firefox. I have tried many things. Some on the internet says the fix is difficult. Other browsers have no issues with downloads. I go to them when I need to download something. I like Firefox, but if I can't resolve this issue, I may have to go to another browser. Help.

I'm highly suspicious of an extensions i downloaded a while ago. It has blocked facebook from tracking me as some websites i access automatically uses Facebook. When I checked the manager to make an exception for a website I was using, I don't see it there, not even to disable it. I even double checked if my only blocker, UBlock Origin is preventing it from showing but it's not even there either. So now I'm worried my data is compromised.

Hello, as of yesterday, I noticed that my Google searches were displaced by ads. If I search something, Google would normally display a short summary and a little piece of information at the top of the page, but instead the first ~10 results are all ads, one of the top ones always being yahoo.com. Same goes for searching for translations "[Any word] + language" normally results in the translation tool being displayed at the top, but again just ads.

I have scanned my PC for viruses (with the Windows Defender and Bitdefender) but at least they didn't find anything. When I deactivate all my extensions (Which is only Adblocker, ironically), nothing changes. When I browse in Safe Mode, the ads do not appear. I have already cleared my Cache etc. but that didn't do too much. No I installed a Scriptblocker and with that, Google is back to normal again. But of course, even if that workaround works, I'd also like to know what is causing this. (I also checked with Chrome for example, the problem is Firefox specific)

Any ideas what I could try next or what the problem might be?

I am attempting to sign into Sync on my tablet and am not able to receive the triggered Verification emails (neither the initial one when attempting to sign in nor any follow up ones). Oddly enough, it's only this device where the issue is present. I was able to use my desktop computer to successfully unlock my account after accidentally locking it and change my primary email address in case that was the issue. Both of these actions triggered email notifications. Even when attempting to sign into my tablet's Sync with my new primary email address I am not able to receive the Verification emails.

I have also double checked my spam folder and whitelisted accounts@firefox.com. I have not noticed any other issues with my tablet besides this very specific thing.

Would someone be able to provide guidance? I wasn't able to find any help articles about this particular scenario and am not sure how to proceed.

Thank you, B
