When my browser starts acting funny like what you're describing, what I do is -
  1. Help --> Troubleshooting Information --> Refresh PaleMoon. This should clear out all the miscellaneous junk (and all your add-ons too, alas!). This works most of the time.
  2. If that fails, you could export your bookmarks as an html file and rm your user settings.

Admittedly these are draconian measures, but desperate times...

Hope this helps!

This time I chose to compile from source 27.8.1, everything so far seems stable and as snappy, I do not notice any significant lag; and of course GTK2 is still working (another plus), unlike Firefox. No regrets dumping FF for PM.

Works fine here, built with alsa, gtk2. system-libvpx ..
Could be startup cache, there is ~/.cache/$mozvendor/$mozapp/$profile or something like that.
Maybe keep track of all your settings in user.js then you can move that file to a clean new default profile.
