Firefox somehow took 4-11 second to actually connect to new address, even the sites I regularly visits. after I'm updating to Windows 11.

So I I've been holding out upgrading to W11 for some time now, but have to upgrade after being tipped by a friend about ONE convenient feature for multitasking, split apps view and combining it into one tab. So far so good, didn't experience any issue. One complain I have is the gigantic cut, copy, open..etc Tab at the top of the new file explorer. But, again, nothing out of the ordinary.
But when I opened Firefox for the first time after upgrading I noticed a painful delay before actually loading the new pages. At first I thought it was only because I just recently updated the OS, so I leave for few hours and keep working my docs. After going back to browse I still have the same issue. This time I notably irritated because of browsing my regularly checked websites have so much delay now compared to before I upgrade to W11.
Here's the list of thing I tried to fix this issue.
Disabling add ons
Disable enhanced protection
Refresh Firefox program
Updating my chipset driver
updating my gfx driver
Reseting my network.
Nothing I tried above worked.
Again the issue is not internet speed. When I downloaded the AMD drivers, it was 14MBps, quite fast.
Then I open the "task manager" and tick the "always on top" option. I noticed that Firefox is still idling even after I clicked links in my homepage. Firefox only uses 2% of CPU usage. It stays that way for 4-11 seconds (depending on the websites I tested) before eventually ramps up the CPU usage to the percentage I expected to opens a new website.
Anyone knows the answer? Please I'm getting desperate here. I don't want to daily drive chromium forks and would like to keep using Firefox.
