We have several issues, but only recently. Version 60.6.1esr. The impact can be quite dramatic. I think that some operations will be happening in the wrong thread.

This issue is 4 years old, I don't know if it still happens to this day. I'm on another laptop, another firefox version and another OS. It stopped happening with me on this laptop, maybe the bug is still there, maybe it got fixed, I have no idea.
