Firefox stops working when speech recognition is on

Posted

Firefox stops working when Windows 10 speech recognition is on.

Interestingly, If I put speech recognition to sleep before I click into Firefox, Firefox Works OK (albeit without speech recognition).  However, if speech recognition is active when I click into Firefox, Firefox is unresponsive for 5 to 10 minutes.

hi, thanks for reporting this. can you try if this change can workaround the performance problem?: go to the firefox menu ≡ > options > privacy & security panel and under permissions check the setting to prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser.
