Firefox 102&103 in Ubuntu 22.04 STOPs frequently. Need to restart Firefox!
Firefox just locks up. The mouse cursor can be used to resize the window, but is otherwise unresponsive, except to to minimize, maximize or close the window. If I click minimize and then restore the window, Firefox will have executed the last mouse-click before minimizing. This happens after five minutes or so after starting Firefox, whether I have only 4 or 5 tabs open, or a whole pile of tabs. All I can do is click X in top RHS, and then restart Firefox. Then click the "recently closed tabs" to get back to where I was. I have tried clearing the cache and (most of) the cookies. As well I did a complete refresh of Firefox, and disabled all the add-ons, but the problem is still there Running on a (old) Lenovo Thinkpad E545 with 16GB, Ubuntu in a SSD using a 50 GB partn with 30GB free. This problem occurs only in Firefox- all other apps continue to run!

Yep, It started for me with 102. I've also had issues with Dev, but so far nothing with Nightly. I would say download it and run it for sometime to see if it hangs on you.
Download it, unzip, and run firefox-bin. You can also log into your account to sync your data over. It's good to have your data in more places as a "backup". sees screenshot https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-nightly
