Updated to latest Firefox, 111.0.1 64 bit. Browser is now extremely slow to load. Hangs up on some web sites. Lots of little blue time out circles. Almost unusable. Have to reboot to get the browser to load.

Can you attach a screenshot?

It is possible that your firewall or other security software blocks or restricts Firefox without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox application. Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

See:

Try to start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to see if that works.

  • Windows: hold down the Shift key while starting Firefox
