Constant slowness and crashing on Nightly (Debian) 68.0a1

On Debian Stretch, Firefox Nightly 68.0a1 (2019-04-03). For the past few days Firefox won't load any pages (after the initial load), everything freezes essentially.

A tab may start to load (loads the window name into the tab) but then switches to a white screen with a loading indicator in the middle of the screen. Generally this freezes the interface as well, so I can't right click or close the tab.

Usually I just wait for an update, but I've updated Nightly 3-4 times since this started happening so I'm getting a little annoyed as I'm having to use Chrome.

I've tried restarting with addons disabled, tried the nightly 'refresh', nothing works sadly.

It has crashed about.... way too many times in the past 3 days, here's a list of my crash reports:

That are shutdown hangs where Firefox takes to long to close properly and a crash is forced.

Did you try a clean new profile (i.e. not a refresh)?

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.
