It freezes and goes completely unresponsive for several seconds, then everything goes back to normal. I'm wondering if one of my extensions is to blame or what.

Anybody else experience this withing the last week or so?

Haven't had that happen. If you reproduce that issue consistently, then try disabling addons systematically.

Not that issue. I've been having another issue, and this is on multiple computers (two Windows, one Mac), where when I close a tab, it leaves a glitched tab titled "New tab" in the tab bar that leads nowhere and can't be closed without exiting the browser.

I doubt it helps, but I've been having that problem with Edge lately.

And before someone says it, no, Edge isn't my main browser. I just use it on specific sites when I'm too lazy to turn off all of my add-ons on Firefox.

I have been having freezing problems in the last week or so, and I am using Firefox. Whether or not it's Firefox causing the problem I don't know. Could be down to WIndows 10 updates. I'm hoping it isn't my hard drive on the way out.

I'm still on Windows 7, so Windows 10 shouldn't be the culprit.

My SSD is pretty new as well, so that shouldn't be the problem. I have some other unresolved hardware issues tho, either with RAM or mobo, but nothing else does this "several second freeze" thing besides Firefox.

Edge also has been hanging for me , for about a week.

Firefox is better since the 56 update.

Is 54.x an extended support version? If not, why not keep up with the latest version? Current is 56.0 and I believe they're still on a 6-week release cycle.
