this issue with FireFox latest ESR and on a desktop machine with
an intel processor.

I can also confirm similar experience with using
Firefox nightly on an Intel based system with plenty of CPU
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
Also using no script the script blocker and usually
only allowing scripts temporarily on the tabs I'm actively
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
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.
