Firefox freezes up once a day within 30 minutes of being started
Every morning I start up Firefox and within 30 minutes of it starting it seems to at some point start to stop working. I can open new tabs, but URLs will not load. Tabs that already have pages loaded won't load new pages. Basically, the UI works but the browser can't load anything.
I have to close Firefox, and then when I start it up again. I have to kill the last process that didn't close cleanly.
After this, Firefox will work for the rest of the day without issue. The next day the same thing happens.
I tried reinstalling Firefox, and I know it is updated to the latest version. I haven't found any issues described like this while looking for help on this, so wondering what to do about this, short of moving to Chrome on this computer.

Firefox may hang if left open for long periods of time. To fix the issue, restart Firefox. If you regularly leave Firefox open so that you return to where you left off, you may want to use Firefox's Session Restore feature.
I close my PC down every day. This freezing happens usually within a hour or two of my starting my day with my computer having just been turned on.
