Description itrymybest80 2020-10-12 13:35:57 UTC
Description of problem: when jumping around various tabs or hovering over markdown menus (bookmarks, icons, etc), Firefox may come to a stall, freezing my system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): firefox-81.0.1-5.fc33.x86_64

How reproducible: unknown, but has happened 3 times since upgrading to fedora 33.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run firefox in fullscreen, jump between window/tabs, bookmarks and hover over them or plugin icons with your mouse cursor.
2. eventually you'll trigger it; if not a system freeze, then an application crash or strange things happen; bookmarks scroll menu going outside of your window or not opening at all, etc.

Actual results: as soon as i saw my mouse cursor hover over one of my plugin icons and it changed colored (as in being highlighted) my system froze.

Expected results: no interruptions or having to hard reset your system.

Additional info: gnome/wayland, latest mesa 20.2 drivers.
