I upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 recently. Since then Firefox 104.0.2 (64-bit) has been arbitrarily freezing; sometimes i have to restart the computer while most of the times I am able to kill the Firefox main process and restart Firefox.

The freeze occurs when i try to save a Web page; i don't see any "logic" as to which Web pages cause Firefox to freeze. It seems totally arbitrary.

I clear my downloads list everyday (sometimes more frequently than that) and clear cookies & cache everyday.

I have selected "no proxy" by default, in 'Connection Settings'.

This never happened until after i upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04.

I've browsed the support pages and don't find anything relevant to my problem. If I'm overlooking something, I apologize in advance!

I have attached a 'screen capture' image of Firefox processes just before i killed the main process.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Ramki

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue with the add-on. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Thank you, jonzn4SUSE! I did what you suggested. So far it hasn't crashed.

I don't know if the earlier problem was due to the snap installation.

Earlier, I'd installed two more add-ons: 'Ad Block Plus' and 'Malware Bytes'. I haven't added these now.

But, I've had those add-ons for a long time and Firefox didn't crash until i upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04.

I will try the non-snap version for a few more days. After that I will go back to the snap version, remove those two add-ons and see if that fixes the firefox freezing problem.

I will report back the results later.

I will mark this problem as solved, for now.
