Sudden recent clogged up searches / loads on newest Firefox

more options

Hi Mozilla - I just wanted to report some recent phenomena. In the past couple weeks Firefox, and related Private Browsing browser, seem to have developed consistent hangups in fetching data across a pretty wide range of sites. Both my banking sites will not load after logging in to them, just spins and spins. Also some very general searches will not load any results for minutes at a time, I just give up and kill them. I've uninstalled/cleaned/reinstalled latest version, etc, etc. By comparison, these same data fetches in banking sites, etc, work dandy in Duckduckgo browser, which is also a heavy no-trace browser. This ominous to me as I really like Firefox and do NOT want to have to resort to Edge. Duckduckgo browser is very good but doesn't have nearly the menu or favorites sort of features that Firefox does. Can you investigate? This is typical Win 10 system in Lenovo i7, been working like a champ till just recently, no system changes. Thanks.

one hour later - adding the attached image of attempt to even get to the login page of Pacific Gas & Electric. This is a major surprise, I have been using Firefox for this site for 3 years and suddenly it goes 'unsupported'?? What is going on with FF?
