    Message seems refer to a problem with cursor theme, did you try to change cursor theme? you can do it easily with gnome-tweaks.

    in gnome-tweaks (you can install it from Ubuntu software) select 'appearance' and change the theme for cursor. the standard one is Yaru.

    I wonder if your install of FF is corrupt in some way; it doesn't happen often but is not unknown.

    So try totally removing FF from your system with
    Code:
    sudo apt purge firefox
    then remove the firefox package from /var/cache/apt/archives if it's there and finally reinstall firefox as usual with
    Code:
    sudo apt install firefox

    I found this file ///var/cache/apt/archives/firefox_87.0+build3-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb
    However, I cannot find a way to remove it.

    Use apt clean or apt autoclean to clean out the cache.
    Code:
    sudo apt clean
    cleans the whole archives.
    Code:
    sudo apt autoclean
    wipes out only the older versions of packages,
    but keeps the latest.
