I have a W7Pro computer, SP1, 4GB RAM, Intel Core i3-2120 CPU, @3.3GHz


Using Firefox 57.0.2


My wife has taken a liking to watching Netflix videos, and often, if she has something to do, pauses the video, leaving Netflix open while she goes about her activities.


If I go online (same computer) when Netflix is paused, I often experience a browser freeze, and have to resort to control-alt-delete to open taskmgr and shut down Firefox. Typically, I'll see 5 processes open and just start forcing them off until they're all gone.


My son tells me he has problems with his laptop when watching Netflix on it, rather than using his tv to access Netflix. Both of us have Samsung smart televisions, which can access Netflix. I haven't tried that yet, but if it works, I'm going that direction.


Any suggestions?
