For some reason, randomly, and now this is occurring more and more frequently, Firefox will just hang and say that "Firefox is not responding," and I have to wait ~30 seconds for it to unfreeze and continue using Firefox. I have tried every potential solution that I could find on the Internet, such as disabling hardware acceleration, creating a new places database, etc., and I still keep getting these 30 second freezes on a pretty frequent basis. Do you guys know what might be going on?

I have to go into task manager to stop background processors from freezing my computer. Closing background processors in disk and memory. Sometimes there are as many as 10 background processors running but it seems to be a only a few and can't tell which one's until I figure it out. Sometimes I can by the amount of usage. I have to do this several times as I use my computer.

No matter what version of FireFox i use it constantly lock`s up , freezes. Nothing works to resolve the issue, restarting the desktop, refreshing the desktop. The only thing i can do is kill the process or reboot but the problem just keeps coming back without fail. I`m using deb 10.6 with a dell i5 4th, gen with plenty of ram and hdd space, it`s a new install at that only about a week old. I have noticed this has been a problem with FF ever since i started using it many years ago.\ The others are all the same, it seems that people and companies don`t take much pride in their work anymore. You see this everywhere not just with FF.

I also noticed that when "Share Data" is checked Wikipedia is mentioned, this site is so subjective it is not allowed to be used by any University student for research so why it it doing being used here ? The other problem is if plugin info can be seen and recorded why are extensions allowed in the store that supposedly block this info from being collected when they don`t work, this feature proves it, if it's supposed to be blocked then it would not be published in the form even after clicking "Share Data" clicking anything is irreverent it should be blocked no matter what.

I have version 75.0 of firefox. I was browsing as normal and it suddenly locked up. If I type in the address bar then search suggestions appear but nothing loads in the main window. Non of my favourites load. Clicking the new tab button doesn't load a new tab. The menu button opens but the options don't load. I have tried uninstalling. I have removed any sign of mozilla / firefox from my program files and program files x86. If I right click on the main window, the menu that appears has pretty much every option you could imagine. theirs so many option that it scrolls off the screen. on one occasion my laptop blue screened (which it doesn't normally do) but when it came back on firefox worked again until I turned the laptop back on again the next day and it was broke again
