I am using manjaro i3 for a long time now, and I allways had this bug which drives me crazy
What is happenning?
I am using manjaro, for programming personnal projects and for school.
Sometimes I want to see on the internet some documentation, what happen is that the page load indefinitely, I am still connected to the internet but it keeps loading and never finally loads.
The only fix I found is to click on the wifi icon and reclick in my wifi to restart the wifi. Then it is working fine for some time then randomly the bug come back again.
Please note than when my page is loading and I click on the wifi icon, the wifi disconnect and firefox display the page "no internet connection" after wifi disconnected. This is weird like if firefox know he have connection to the internet and try to load my page (indefinitely), but when I really disconnect the network, firefox know that he is no longer connected.
I had this issue also with discord and minecraft: not being able to see discord messages / minecraft available servers.
Another thing is that sometimes I play minecraft with a friend on discord, and the bug is happening, I am still connected to the server and able to talk with my friend but unable to load any new internet page.
I have seen some other people having the same issue like on this post: Wifi stops working even thought it appears as connected
I did not quite understood the fix of this post, thats why I am posting my own.
Here are some additional information they asked on the above post:

I tried to update today my hole system with sudo pacman -Syyu but the issue still happened after the update and reboot
I hope that you can help me with that, because recently it is hapenning very often and this issue is very annoying
