When I open a new tab and start typing in the address bar it will not show anything I type for several seconds. It's very annoying.

I recommend running Process Explorer, sort the processes by CPU usage, then see what is using the CPU when the pauses occur. Scott.

I tried checking "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" and that seems to have fixed it for now. I read about that on a Mozilla support page with people with the same problem.
