Please note that I use F39, which is why I don't remove karma here, but the F39 bodhi build does not consider BZ#2251202 , which also affects F39 and which remains on F39:

I can only open Google Maps with NoScript if all scripts of the domain are blocked. When I do so, I obviously get the google page that JavaScript needs to be enabled for this service. If I then enable/allow Google Map's domains, Firefox freezes shortly later. Even if I close firefox, the process of the one tab "Isolated Web Co" remains active on 100% CPU. I need to kill it manually. Vice versa, I can keep firefox open and just kill the damaged process. Then Firefox tells me the tab has crashed, but Firefox itself keeps working.

Since I have not used such pages for several days, I can only say for sure that the issue started to occur either on firefox-119.0.1-1.fc39 or firefox-120.0-2.fc39. I use F39 KDE. The issue occurs with 6.5.X and 6.6.X kernels.

However, I experienced that pages where google maps is integrated tend to work fine. E.g., when opening https://www.homegate.ch , entering some city and then opening offers in the map, it clearly uses Google Maps (through maps.googleapis.com & gstatic.com scripts) and it works always fine there. The actual "Google Maps" https://www.google.com/maps works never.

The issue is now consistent: a page works always, or never (and if it breaks, it breaks always at the same time).

I also added this to the bugzilla report.
