Type tool has extremely poor performance

This is Photoshop 22.1.1, very latest release.  Over the years, editing type in Photoshop has always been kind of poor compared to other programs, but what I'm experiencing now is very different.  One thing that happens over and over, even while carefully testing and watching is that any word with two consecutive letters is likely to miss the 2nd letter.  For example, if I type "Food", it'll type "Fod".  It's doing this over and over.  Also, it is not responding well to the arrow keys, especially when using a key modifier to select an entire word, or to move the cursor faster.  I'm really frustrated with Adobe at this point.  I used to say that Adobe software was the most stable, most perfect, most amazing software I've ever used.  That was true for decades.  But over the last 5 or more years, I'm finding bugs all the time.  Even as soon as I install a new update and launch the program, I find bugs now.  This software is just too expensive to be dealing with these kinds of problems.  I'm at the point now where I actually can't trust it.  The software is making mistakes and I may not notice them.  The last thing I want to do is go chasing after some alternative programs because I know that Adobe is still the best, but I also can't have this kind of situation where when I type a word, it just misspells the word on it's own, or when I make a selection, the selection has some kind of bizarre flaw in it. That's what I'm dealing with right now with Photoshop.
