Update 127.0 is causing a laggy experience

Hey everyone,

When I opened firefox this morning, I was notified of the update 127.0 update. I have auto-update enabled. Since the update, my browser experience has reverted back to 1999, where opening a tab is slow to a crawl, scrolling on (for example) facebook is delayed, and youtube videos keep buffering.

Note: I have a beast PC with 36GB RAM, and a 1000W PSU, yet in my task manager it stays as using almost 4GB of RAM and "Very high" power usage.

I've updated drivers, tried the "firefox safe mode" which had the same issues, and confirmed that this doesn't impact any other of my internet-based activities (like gaming and discord).

I've also run a malware check (deep scan) and found nada.

Lastly, I've tried ye-olde 'turn it off and on again'.

Nothing has helped. Any suggestions? I'd love it firefox had a revert update feature but it does not, which is a huge bummer. Please gimme a hand, 'cause I hate Chrome, which is working just fine.
