Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Firefox hangs with high CPU load while loading tools > add-ons - dirty trick to circumvent it

Posted 01-09-2017 at 09:03 PM by the dsc

Just in case someone is experiencing this issue. If you already have stylish installed, click on its button, and then to "manage styles..."

It will take you to that "page" with the "extensions" sidebar, without hanging. Just click on extensions, of course.

The problem possibly is with the "get add ons" internal page, somehow, which is the target of "tools -> add-ons". Or with my own particular firefox profile, maybe.

Perhaps installing stylish from the web also can be done in order to do the trick, if one doesn't have it already.
