@xyzzy thank goodness, this had been plaguing my old Mac for years and locking me out of viewing many videos

Still experiencing slight delays when loading sites, although not so serious as the first time they appeared.
@matmur44: Hi, just wanted to let you know we managed to reproduce a similar issue, yours have been duplicated to VB-58952, we have a fix in review internally, and if testing goes well we will hopefully have it in a future snap soon
@jacekn There is a particular place in the code where we know that if it is ever reached, the browser is in the bad state. It is rather likely that the browser crashes later, but it may not. Moreover, even if the browser crashes later, we will not get a useful crash report pinpointing to the cause. Yet we want to know if really fixed for 2.9 all problems related to getting into the bad state. So for the snapshots we temporary added the code that explicitly crashes the browser when the bad state is detected to get more informative crash reports.
@thedragonreborn: Hey, this is caused by keyboard focus being put in the horizontal menu, we know about the issue and have been looking into it, but don't have a solid fix just yet

@altcode: This is exactly what happens to me on macOS (been happening for about 3 snapshot versions now). I opened VB-57575 about it
Is your 'new tab position' behavior set to 'as tab stack with related tab'?

@t0ken407 It is and it appears to be the source of the problem. As soon as I changed it to one of the other new tab position options, the problem disappeared.

It is great that you have added additional debug information.
Now is the time to finally fix crash, which happens when tabs are closing: VB-59146.
Do not know how exactly reproducing conditions looks like, trying to open and close tabs on purpose yields no results (except for swapping), so dumps should be useful in this case.

In Google Hangouts/Meet microphone or screen sharing don't work.
The 2.8.1664.38-1 version, works properly.
