Firefox freezes when returning from sleep

I use Firefox on my various devices and I've never faced this issue before. On my new laptop which is a XPS, whenever I let my laptop go to sleep, once I return it from sleep Firefox is unusable (frozen). I can do other things with my laptop but I can't interact with Firefox in any way as it is completely frozen. Sometimes I am able to open a new tab but can't type anything into the search bar.

What I do to use Firefox right now is kill the process in task manager and launch Firefox again and for the most part I am able to use the browser but it is very tedious having to do this. Some steps I've tried to permanently fix this so far are disabling hardware acceleration and disabling disk caching but nothing seems to have fixed the problem so far.
