Browser occasionally becomes unresponse and shows only the resizing icon on cursor

Occasionally, my browser will freeze and become unresponsive. I can't figure out a consistent trigger for when it occurs. Whenever it happens, my browser will not allow me to click into any of the tabs or on any of the websites, and only shows a resize icon.

You can see an example of what I mean here.

I've tried reinstalling firefox, removing all cache and cookies. This is super odd since this only happens on my desktop computer, and not with any of my other machines (which use the same plugins).

I was finally able to narrow down when it happens. Whenever I try to resize my Firefox window, the browser immediately becomes unresponsive and displays a white screen. I'm not able to touch anything inside of it. This issue persists even in safe mode.

I'll work my way through the articles you've linked. Thank you!
