Ok I think I need some help because I am not a webdev. I have a Wordpress installation where the block editor freezes the browser (probably since the update to 5.6). Its not the plugins (I deactivated them all), and not the theme (tried multiple), and not a specific post, and it happens in both Firefox & Chrome. It is not a general wordpress problem, because I have other installations that work fine. How to I get this fixed?

Thats what happens. Can't click anything in that tab anymore.

The performance inspector in Firefox says there is a "DOM-Event" going on forever. What does it mean?

Oh wow I fixed it. It was a plugin after all - a user role editor. As long as a user had that custom role it did not work, no matter if the plugin was actually active. Changing to a default role and disabling the plugin was the solution.

@ConnyDuck Memory leak? But that is my very uneducated guess.

@ConnyDuck Ich habe keine Ahnung ob es theoeretisch etwas damit zu tun haben *kann*, aaaaaaber in so vielen Fällen wenn Wordpresse irgendwie komisch waren und der Fehler nicht vernünftig auffindbar, war alles gut nachdem ich die PHP-Version beim Hoster erhöht hatte. Solltest du da nicht die aktuellste verwenden, wäre es vielleicht einen Versuch wert? (Backup vorausgesetzt natürlich, insbesondere wenn du einige ältere Plugins/Themes nutzt.)

@schokopflaster für mich sieht es nach einem JS Fehler aus, aber werde das jedenfalls probieren, danke
