Issues with v100

Since installing v100 I have had problems where tabs will not load anything. They will work fine for anything from 5 minutes, to an hour, then randomly just seem to hang. The only way to fix it is to close firefox and restart it, which is a PITA if you are trying to research stuff with multiple tabs and so on.

Additionally, some customers I support started getting SSL_Error_Bad_Mac_Alert errors... only on Firefox, and only when accessing google, and even then it might work fine for half a day, then continuously get that error- but open same page with chrome, and its fine. PCs on the same LAN also running firefox also had no issues with google at the same time as one of the effected PCs, but once updated also started getting the error intermittently (but again still not necessarily at the same time as each other). As you can imagine google is used a lot, and so this can be particularly painful. I have tried most of the suggested fixes for that error, and prior to the upgrade there were no issues.

Issue has occurred on both Windows 10 Pro, and Windows 11 Pro

Is there a way I can roll back one or two versions? It is really starting to become disruptive, and if it continues we will have to look at changing the deployed browsers completely.

For the Google issue, try searching about:config for tls and change the following preference to false: security.tls.enable_0rtt_data

Changing to an earlier version of the browser may present issues because of the file compatibility.ini and may require a new profile.
