Hi! Recently, in my laptop, Firefox started freezing at every single startup; after force shutdown and restart, though, it works flawlessly each time, and for the whole duration of the session at the computer. Can anyone please suggest a solution?

My laptop set-up is practically identical to that of my PC, but the latter doesn't exhibit the same malfunction.

I've tried anything I could, including reinstalling the browser, removing all of my bookmarks (about 10,000) and addressing extensions (Decentraleyes, Default Bookmark Folder, Disable Tab Detach, Flagfox, I don't care about cookies, Keepa, Notifier for Gmail, Privacy Badger, To Google Translate, uBlock Origin, Undo Close Tab, Video DownloadHelper and Youtube's Annotations No More), but not even safe mode improved the situation in the least. Windows Defender also hasn't detected any malware and my web surfing habits are as safe as it gets.

The only deeper data I could gather is that the problem manifests with a progressive, rapid surge in CPU and RAM usage; the former, for example, is saturated to its total 16 GB in a matter of about 20 seconds.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7586 with Windows 11 64 bit; Firefox version is the latest, 100.0, and, by the way, none of the recent updates has improved the situation.

Thanks to anyone who might come up with an educated guess!

Hi

1st off thanks for creating a web that is open and free and all the amazing and great work you guys do!!!! I appreciate your work and organization.

My suggestion is I like to have firefox able to have my banking details readily available. Meaning I like to add my banking info from my 3 banks and paypal acc directly into Firefox. I am always paying for items through firefox web browser, and have to keep adding in my details to the website that I am buying from. e.g I will have to get my wallet and take out my card add the 16 digit number and the cvv & I got to make sure those number are correct. This is a lot of work to keep on doing every time I need to buy something its ridiculous!! It be cool to directly access my funds from my firefox browser and have direct access to my banking portal. I sure there will be a lot of issues with privacy, but I'm sure you guys can make this happen in some way.

I have tried every troubleshooting from the other answers available on the support website but whenever I am trying to login, it shows a black screen and I also unregistered Twitter from about:serviceworkers but still nothing, I also cannot upload the screenshot here it just says uploading and nothing else. Images are not uploading even from other devices.

Here is one of the errors showing on the console: Cross-Origin Request Blocked

Update: this issue was because of a filter from uBlock's list. Fixed now. I am not sure how to close my question.

With Devtools open and Responsive Design Mode active, selecting a device from the Device list and then right-clicking causes the context menu to appear in the lower right of the screen (figure-1 or first image if filenames aren't shown).

Depending on where I click, the menu shrinks (figure-2, second image).

Using the same device, if I type, "412" in the width box, it changes to Responsive Design Mode. After that, it works as it should (figure-3, last image). Notice that I clicked in the exact same spot as the first image.

I've tried safe mode; deleting all my profiles; none of those worked.

I have like 4-8 skipped frames every second if i watch a 120fps stream or video on twitch (yes they exist), turning Hardware acceleration off works but i am hoping for another solution. Tried it with a fresh install (and deleting everything in appdata of course) of Firefox and Firefox Nightly but both have the same problem. I don´t have this problem on Chrome but i like Firefox more but i just can´t use it right now if this is not fixed...

Funny enough, when i start firefox's troubleshooting mode i don't have this problem, i don't know if it disables Hardware acceleration but in the Settings it's still enabled.
