When I navigate to www.pcmag.com on my Surface Book 2. FF will hang or crash. I do not have this problem with other browsers on my laptop. Is this a known bug or do I need to update something.

I am running the latest FF version with default settings, the only add-on is BitWarden.

Firefox will not start in normal mode nor in safe mode. It crashes instantly to the crash reporter, right after opening.

What has happened with Mozilla? A month ago, there were no problems when watching stream video 1080p 60fps. But now it is impossible to do it: constant and long freezes. I have noticed that CPU load is almost 100% when watching stream. I have recorded the system parameters for 10 minutes for the same stream via Mozilla and Edge and the difference is great (see the attached files). I do not know what parameters were a month ago for Mozilla but definitely I never noticed any problems. Hope this info will be helpful to fix the problem.

FF uses 100+ CPU on my otherwise totally fast up-to-date MacBook. This, despite doing all the fixes suggested, repeatedly.

It has gotten so bad that it constantly overheats my Mac, causes my fan to go on full blast non-stop, even when it's in the background, so I basically have to stop using it.

Mozilla needs to get serious and overhaul this heavy-use browser.

I've tried both version 40 and 42. Every time I try to load a webpage, Firefox quits responding part way through. I've gone through add-ons. I went through all the help articles and nothing worked. The problem started after installing Windows 10 and often happens on Politico and Fox News. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. After the uninstall I scanned the registry with ccleaner
