Firefox 57 has memory leak and hangs at TLS connection. No one has come up with a solution as yet and I am wondering why Mozilla has not responded with a solution. Computer is an HP 24-r014 with plenty of memory.

Chosen solution

Try to disable IPv6 (check for other possible causes as well).

You can create a new profile to test if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
