How to disable left click trigger on focused item when spacebar is pressed?

Hello, When I have an element focused in a web page, and press the spacebar, Firefox triggers a click on that item. It is especially annoying if I clicked the play button on any major streaming website, including YouTube or Deezer, and then when I try to pause the video using the spacebar, the following two things happen: 1. Default website functionality triggers a change in media state (from play to pause and vice versa) 2. Firefox behavior triggers a click on that item, inverting the state brought on by 1, and effectively rendering the spacebar useless. The playback goes from paused to play to paused instantly. I started noticing this behavior with the more recent versions of Firefox. Is there a way to disable this behavior, so that I can use the spacebar for play/pause functionality like in other browsers? Thank you
