Firefox freezes on certain pages

For a few days, Firefox has been freezing at certain pages and interactions. For instance:

Other pages work fine. When the freeze happens, the whole browser becomes completely unresponsive, including the window controls. The following is printed in the console if I launch FF from console:

``` ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 10319 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ```

I am running FF version 88.0 (64-bit) on Arch Linux under Gnome on Wayland, installed through pacman.

What I have tried without success:

  • Using a new FireFox profile (no extensions, history, cookies, etc)
  • With and without WebRender
  • With and without Wayland composition (`MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND`)
  • All combinations of the two above
  • Restarting the system, updating the system, reinstalling firefox
  • Running mozregression

With mozregression I had the issue for all builds since `56f6da03c7e352f53fa923b30f66dfdf09a34116`, for all older builds I get the "Gah. Your tab just crashed." message.

I don't have issues with other programs or web browsers.
