Hello, i would like to report that every newer version of Firefox Browser after version 84 periodically freezes (hangs), the freeze continues indefinitely, until i shut down the browser with Task Manager. In version 85, support in Mozilla Firefox for Flash was discontinued as far as i know, so this may have some connection with the problem. The freezes happen (occasionally) when i try to open some of the menus, such as history, help, view, edit, file, etc.
The issue gets fixed when hardware acceleration is disabled, so this may have something to do with a lack of Firefox compatibility in its newest versions with the video driver. Unfortunately, the browser becomes too slow and laggy when HA is disabled, so this is not a working solution for me.
Using older video drivers also does not help, the issue occurs only with Firefox Browser versions after 84. I do not have such issues with other browsers.
Windows 7 64 bit
Video card Nvidia GT 750 Titanium
The problem occurs with Firefox Browser - all versions after 84, plus with all drivers for the video card
I never get the same problem with the same hardware on Win 10 (it is a dual boot computer with Win7 and Win10 OS). There newer versions of Firefox work normally.
So if you have time, please forward this report to the Mozilla bug fix team.
