Turning off the smooth scrolling helps a little but actually, I see a pretty noticeable difference in responsiveness between the version 52 and version 60 icecat on my system. I can switch between my old and new setup from the boot menu, and I find that the older 52 version is faster and smoother and works fine with the smooth scrolling option. When I boot into the upgraded system running the upgraded version 60 there is a noticeable lag in the responsiveness of icecat browser (but the crash tab issue appears fixed in the newer version). Maybe it is more apparent on the older hardware which my system is installed, or perhaps the upgrade of my system has changed some other things though I used the same config.scm file as the previous upgrade. I also compare the responsiveness of the Gnome Web browser, and it is good in both the old and new configurations. This makes me think it has more to do with the new icecat version than something with the system upgrade.

Thanks all for the help and advice on handling package upgrades and memory management. I have been able to update my system now and use icecat version 60. I can verify that the tab crash appears to be resolved with this new version of icecat on my PC, however I also now notice that scrolling is not
as smooth as it used to be.

I don't experience issues, but try disabling "smooth scrolling" in
preferences. In past versions of IceCat/Firefox, I've had to disable it
on older hardware for performance reasons.
