Yes, I tried 106.0.4-1 today and found the same. In taskmanager there is no obvious resource hogging by LW. But, everything else seems to be severly slowed down, ranging through VPNs, email client, Firefox, text editors, Macrium Reflect, etc. Some software refuses to open while LW is running. Some extensions in LW reverted back to their default settings. It is disturbing. I've never experienced a real time browser hijack but the behaviour suggests that this is what might be happenning, or that there is malware on the device. I couldn't see anything in the changelog on the LW website, Github, Reddit dealing with this.106.0.4-1 is having the same problem. After I installed the last two versions of librewolf (one at a time) every app started to take a long time to launch, including librewolf. Even keepass took about 4x longer to unlock my password database than usual. After I revert to 106.0.2-1 everything returns back to normal.
I really don't have the time to keep changing versions, I'll stick to tweaked Firefox for now.
