i don't want to brag, but it really depends on the phone.
lineageOS on a 2-year-old oneplus, firefox (or Fennec F-droid to be precise) purrs like a kitten. and receives constant updates. i rarely use any other browser.
what you describe sounds like what i experienced with my previous phone (underpowered 2014 acer).

Agreed! I have been using it for a few weeks on Slackware and Windows 7 here at work. I started looking for an alternative to Firefox as it would freeze up pretty regularly on random sites. I used Chromium for a short time, but much prefer Vivaldi!

With the addition of pocket and removal of RSS support, Firefox is not the browser it was...

Still using Firefox, does pretty much all I need, and looks and works the same on Windows and Linux pretty much, not saying others don't but I started with Firefox when it was Phoenix or whatever, seems like it had a different name anyway.
My memory isn't as good as it used to be either!!

I've wasted so much time over the years having to change configuration settings to make Firefox usable or at least to retain consistency over time. However, in saying that, I'll stick with it. Its benefits still far outweigh its shortcomings and I'm very comfortable with it after all these years.
Ditto ... and STILL think Firebug was much better than the built in crap we have to use now. But it's not just the browser being mess up, the desktop itself is an utter joke these days? Things that have worked for years no longer work and trying to fathom why is an equal waste of time?

+1 Waterfox. I left PaleMoon in disgust, and have been using Waterfox for quite a while. Can it be added to the list?

Netflix works well in Firefox as does Prime.
