The U2F support in Firefox (122.0, FreeBSD 14.0-STABLE/amd64) is very
unreliable. Sometimes it works, sometimes the "Touch your security key" popup
appears, but Firefox fails to talk to the U2F security key, i.e., the security
key doesn't flash. This can be reproduced at the https://webauthn.io/ demo

I use ssh with U2F-backed keys (ed25519-sk) all the time, and that is
completely reliable, so the problem is due to Firefox.
