Hi Firefox,

This problem of freezing the page started recently. I do online course and when I open the portal for my school, and want to message the teacher, Firefox freezes the page, I cannot close the message box nor can I go back... totally frozen. I have to close all tabs and start again. I message the school from another browser, it works fine. But with Firefox, can't do it.

I clean my cache, and cookies, updated the Firefox, everything else works fine. Notified the school, they said, nobody else has this problem. So Firefox, what do I do to fix this problem, beside trying another browser. Thanks

Attached a print screen to show. Can't even pick a name from their drop down menu.

I have the same issue that typically happens when I'm on Amazon.com. Started with Firefox 100 or 101. I've disabled hardware acceleration. Run Firefox in safe mode. Disabled my anti-malware apps. 1Disabled all add-ons and progressively added them back in. Refreshed Firefox. Reinstalled Firefox. Nothing seems to work.

Since I refuse to use Amazon's Chief Intelligence Agent, Alexa, on any device, I'm wondering if she's trying to exact her revenge. Maybe we should go into couples' counseling.

Any ideas here?

Win 11 (OS build 22621.754 , 22H2): I have this problem, but it occurs 95% of the time when I use right click and use "copy link" or "copy email" -- in other words, only when I use a copy function. No other applications are effected, and the Task Manager says I'm not using 100% of memory or CPU.

Yeah, I noticed it in 102 and it happens mostly in Windows for me.
