Firefox Kiosk does not appear when I log in but does when I start it manually from the GNOME x-terminal

I have Ubuntu 22.04 (on a Dell Optiplex 3000) with a minimal installation. I downloaded Firefox 125, removed the SNAP Firefox and installed this Firefox with no issue. I can run "firefox --kiosk" and Firefox runs in kiosk mode with no issue.

I have made some changes in the "about:config" part of Firefox. I have also made some changes to the Ubuntu keyboard shortcut list. There is only one user created on this system and I have configured Ubuntu to login this user automatically upon reboot.

However, if I setup Firefox --kiosk to start automatically (I use the gnome-session-properties application to achieve this) and then reboot, Firefox does run, but it does not appear on the screen. If I enter the "switch windows" keyboard shortcut (ALT-TAB), the Firefox kiosk appears.

So, is this something I can fix by changing the Firefox configuration, or is it an Ubuntu configuration change. If so, can anyone tell me what I should do, or have an idea how to debug this?

I've recently had a little video window appear in the bottom right corner of my browser screen. I can't find any control link to eliminate it other than closing it manually every time it appears. Where did it come from and how do I get rid of it?

I've had this issue ever since switching to a new laptop. This issue is specifically within Firefox (I have tested this in other browsers and programs, and the issue isn't there. Everything else works perfectly fine!)

Essentially, whenever Firefox plays multiple sounds at the same time (for example, I use both youtube and discord in-browser) the second sound will briefly mute the other sound. (Going back to the discord-youtube example, if I am watching a youtube video and recieve a discord notification, the youtube video will pause for about half a second.) Or if a site has background audio but also plays a short audio clip when certain elements are clicked, for example, it will cause this "overlapping" issue. Again, this issue is only within Firefox.

I am using Windows 11 if that helps. I've already tried using a Firefox Refresh and peeking in about:config but I'm totally lost as to what I can try next, since I can't find any other examples of people with this issue online. Sometimes the issue briefly fixes itself but then reappears.

I added the Save to Pocket (mini) extension to Firefox 125.0.2 today. When I look at the collection of articles I've saved to Pocket (I've been using Pocket for years) in the browser, I only see 8 articles. But when I open Pocket on my iPhone and iPad, the list of articles I've saved is much more longer (an estimate would be between 50 and 75 articles saved to Pocket). I haven't found any articles in Mozilla support to help me solve this. Thanks

How do I turn off those annoying "update available" notifications/reminders that keep popping up? I've gone into Settings, and in the Updates section firefox only let's me select auto updates or check for updates. I searched online but couldn't seem to find anything about how to disable the notifications all together with the newer version of FF. It's driving me crazy, thinking of switching browsers because of this. Thanks in advance!

FF loads so slowly and blocks so many sites that I had to disable enhanced tracking to get to mozilla.org. It can take up to 30 seconds for a site to load if I don't disable enhanced tracking, and even then, some won't load and will time out. I have 7 pinned items that load when FF opens, and it can take up to 5 minutes for all of those to load. Even on some sites where I have enhanced tracking turned off, I have to close the initial block page to get the site to load. Sometimes I have to stop the download and refresh to get the page to load. It is blocking sites that I've used for years with no problems.

What I have done: Troubleshoot mode - loaded a bit faster, but still had problems with some bookmarked pages I've used for years with no problems. It seems to hate all Google Pages, especially Google News Turned off Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software protection Turned off HTTPS only mode Turned off Block Popup Windows
