Thanks Nolan for all that info. Just like you, I like having back up browsers to go to.

Sorry, having read through the Mozilla ticket, I've found:

Brave made my system much more stable, but I'd like the option of
going back to Firefox if I ever need to. I'll subscribe to the Mozilla
bug, but would also like to keep tabs on NVDA's side as well.

Dear all,

This issue has been documented on NVDA's GitHub tracker also and
there are a couple related tickets whose links I am happy to share if
somebody is interested. I have experienced this issue on two laptops
(I don't use Desktops), both with Intel processors (I don't have a
machine with an AMD processor to test), as recently as with the
latest NVDA and Firefox versions. It is a frequently reoccurring bug
that is rather disruptive, and I hope its cause can be identified and
a resolution be reached soon.

It only ever happened with very specific websites.

And, to answer another question: I think I experienced this on an
AMD desktop years ago, but I so rarely use desktops that I can't be
sure that was actually the issue. I have run into it on three
laptops that I can think of.
