For quite a while I am using Firefox and had no issues, but recently, with new version , I am constantly facing two issues 1. the initial load of a page takes more then 30 seconds , sometimes 1 minute, but after the first page has been loaded if I open another page , it will be as usual 2. Completely random and without any sign of slowing down the OS - the OS freezes - nothing works at all and I have to restart it using the power button. ( and this happens when Firefox is open so I doubt Firefox)

version Firefox Browser 91.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0

Try downloading a copy of Firefox and run it from the folder(do not sign into you Firefox account) to see what happens.

It's my impression, or it looks a lot like this problem here?

So the current version 96.0.2 that you downloaded has the same issue? That bug is for an old version.
