Hanging on text box input

I'm having an issue with a particular text field. When entering any text into said text field, my CPU will shoot to 100% usage on some cores, hang for a bit and then print the text after a few seconds. I have an Intel 13900k @ 5.5ghz.

I can't provide a link to the text box as it's a WordPress CMS on my local machine. This issue does not present itself on the competitor browser.

A few troubleshooting steps I've taken:

  • Re-install Firefox
  • New profile
  • Disable all extensions
  • PC safemode + Firefox safe mode
  • Tested dev/nightly/stable (I'm using BETA daily)
  • Disabled accel

Hopefully I'm able to have an expert look at my profiler to help determine what the issue is. I'm not knowledgeable in this area unfortunately. https://share.firefox.dev/3s60ISV

Thank you.

Does it still happen if you disable "Remember search and form history"?

Hi Zeroknight,

Amazing! That worked, thank you so much!

If I could also ask, is there a way I can keep this setting on but disable it on a this problematic site specifically? I'd rather keep my search history. Annoying that forms and search history are one tickbox.

What is the size of formhistory.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder as there might be a problem with this file ?

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).

Size of formhistory.sqlite for my default profile is 1,152 KB.

Do note that even a fresh profile with no sync'd data, the same issue occurs.

Can you right-click on the page, choose "Save Page As" > "Web Page, HTML Only" and share the html file?
