I am running three desktops networked in a Windows Ten environment.
I have not seen any of this sluggishness with Firefox. I am
wondering if all those experiencing these issues are running
laptops. I know a few people have indicated that they are running
laptops. Is anyone running only desktops and still having this

I can also confirm similar experience with using
Firefox nightly on an Intel based system with plenty of CPU and
Seems a little worse lately like in the last few
weeks happening almost once a day
Using many many windows in Firefox with many tabs in
Also using no script the script blocker and usually
only allowing scripts temporarily on the tabs I'm actively using
Lately it seems like more drastic measures are
required like power cycling the system however in the past
restarting nvda used to work
I experience this, usually a
couple of times per day. For me, NVDA is too inactive to use
Task Manager to see what process is seizing-up my laptop or
tablet. I don't have a desktop shortcut to kill the Firefox
process because I didn't know Firefox was to blame. Usually
using the Alt+Shift+n shortcut to force NVDA to re-start will
work and, as long as I use that brief moment of NVDA life to
close a few programs that I figured might be responsible
(Firefox and WinAmp and word) I can make sure that I have any
unsaved documents saved before re-starting my computer.
I do use Chrome as well as Firefox, but since Firefox is still
running with its tabs open when I also use Chrome, I don't
know whether this happens if I'd only used Chrome that day. I
much prefer the Firefox browser.
I'm using the latest Firefox (86.0) and the latest stable NVDA
(2020.4) on both a Surface Pro 4 tablet and an Asus gaming
laptop, both using Intel processors and 8Gb memory.
