Over the past few days FireFox v. 99.0.1 had been non-responsive on a tab.
Got to the point I had to close FF and tried to use cCleaner to clear cache/history etc.
However cCleaner could not proceed as it claimed FF was still open.
Using Windows Task Manager I found FireFox was "Suspended" (screenshot 1)
I then terminated the task - so cCleaner could proceed.
Then FF appeared to work OK. Until the next time....
It just happened a few minutes ago closing FF - using cCleaner - once again FF was "suspended" and had to be terminated in Task Manager.
On FF help it said Update to version 100 which I did BUT the update got stuck on the FF Update - for several minutes (definitely over 10 mins) so I had to terminate the FF Updater using Windows Task Manager (screenshots 2 & 3) again used Task Manager to terminate that.
FF appeared to open OK even showed the version 100 What's new tab.
BUT when I used FF help to check version I got Restart FF to update to version 100 (screen shot 4) Perhaps the last might temporary due to terminating the what appeared to be stuck Updater, but it was worth mentioning.
PC details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Version 10.0.19044 Build 19044 System Model HP Pavilion 590-p0097c Desktop PC System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8400 CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2808 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB
Any help appreciated.
