I have been trying to upload photos of the tree and leaves and mistakenly added a poster from our Arts Council. but I don’t know how to delete it. I don’t see thrips or spider mites on the leaves.

This appears to be symptoms of overwatering. This is common with figs, as they are extremely drought tolerant. Allowing time to dry, thoroughly, between waterings will be the answer. Though it will not prevent the issue, it will stop new leaves from having the issue.
