What happens is no matter how many tabs I open, after a few minutes I will not be able to open a link in any new tab. A short while later I cannot re-use the tabs where I did manage to open a link before - when I type or paste in a new link and press enter, or rcl+paste and go nothing happens - nothing gets loaded. In the "console" I see zero movement, same in the "network" tab of devtools.
I then close firefox and try to open a new instance. Often nothing will happen - when I go then to task manager I will see 4 instances of Firefox processes running and I have to kill 3 of them (the 4th disappears automatically after I "end task" the 3rd one).
Reinstalling does not help, disabling hardware acceleration does not help. Admittedly I do not experience this on my other machine (both Windows 10 and 11 - on yhis machine changing over to Win11 did not influence this).
What's interesting is it started some 6 months ago (I think), and the issue disappears shortly before the next update. Then I foolishly install the FF update, and the issue resurfaces.
I have no idea what's causing this but I hate it. I need help with this please.
