Firefox Browser

Windows 10


At exactly one hour intervals my browser will stall for a few seconds. Sound and video will still play, in fact the browser seems to work but my inputs will have a delay of a few seconds. If I click a link it won't go through or if I type something it won't spell out until a short time has passed.


Also if I have anything outside or have had anything outside the browser open I will be able to see this each time. A "not responding" bar will flash at the top of the browser then two to six seconds later it will flash again. In between those two I will not be able to input anything. It seems to be the same phenomenon but simply more visible.


If I close the browser and reopen it the timing will be reset. It will now happen each hour at the time (or about a minute after) I reopened the browser. So if say I open the browser at 6:40 I will get this stall at 7:40-7:41, 8:40-8:41, 9:40-9:41, etc.


It's not catastrophic it's just a little annoying.

There is only you and me watching this topic....so the chances of you getting someone else to chime in are not so good......So.....


This sounds very much like a "task'....in task manager.......


Please establish a RESTORE POINT before you do anything......or if you are in the habit of making backups....take an image now. (You should be doing this...especially with win 10)


Then....read at the following link. Hopefully you will pick up what it is that "interrupts" each and every hour...
