I've tried refreshing and using it with zero addons. At the moment it seems to be freezing after I copy things from a textarea. It started freezing just after the Windows update... core isolation is OFF (laptop doesn't support it)... Firefox is at the latest version too.

Bug 1774285 (the bug that is causing the problem) should be fixed very soon. Until it is, you can disable the new Suggested Actions feature in your Windows settings as a temporary fix.

Enter about:config in the URL bar and try changing accessibility.force_disabled to 1 then restart. Also check about:third-party for any familiar software names that might be interfering.

Thank you. It feels like this also helped.. Since I did that, it didn't freeze.
