Mozilla on Monday, October 31st pushed out an updated to Firefox (106.0.3). This update addresses an odd crash/freeze Firefox users were experiencing when copying text using Windows 11 devices where the Suggested Actions clipboard feature is enabled.
The issue impacts Firefox users running Microsoft’s latest OS release, Windows 11, version 22H2, where this new feature is enabled by default.
“The browser freezes for a period of time (over 20 seconds), during which the entire window (chrome, viewport) is unresponsive to user input,” the user filed five months ago reads.
“Video and animation appears to continue playing. After a while, the browser becomes responsive again. The amount of time is variable, and seems to depend on the number of extensions loaded – my default profile can freeze for minutes.”
