When navigating to a site (for example a login form), I start filling in the form, and suddenly the popup appears and my keystrokes are not registered anymore.

Can we maybe just set privacy.resistFingerprinting.autoDeclineNoUserInputCanvasPrompts to true?

There's many threads on forums, reddit & stack exchange of users being annoyed by the popup.

Duplicate of #29028. We've tested the fix a bit in our alpha series. It seems it works as expected, thus we either backport the preference flipping for the next stable or you'll get it by us releasing Tor Browser 8.5 (whatever comes first).
