This is known issue, please use firefox-x11 package as a workaround.

Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2020-09-25 06:55:28 UTC
btw. does it help if you press a 'super' key to show active gnome shell application/workspaces?

Comment 3 Peter Gniewek 2020-09-25 12:52:28 UTC
When I press the super key the web browser seems to unfreeze while the button is pressed.  When the button is not pressed the browser is frozen until the web browser unfreeze by itself after several seconds.

Can you try to enable webrender? Go to about:config, set gfx.webrender.enabled to true and restart browser.

Comment 5 Peter Gniewek 2020-09-30 20:45:03 UTC
After I enabled  the webrender, Firefox web browser doesn't freeze.
