Resolved as per https://pagure.io/librejs/pull-request/51.  Pending release of 7.20.3.

When I tried visiting <https://lichess.org/> with GNU IceCat 60.7.0 and LibreJS 7.20.2, the browser ended up hanging completely due to LibreJS. (I disabled the addon and it worked just fine.)

Furthermore, when IceCat restarts, the session restore causes it to hang, and thus one cannot access the browser after visiting the site.

FYI, the current Lichess commit as of writing is cb86a85.

This is especially a shame since Lichess is interested in free software and has the Web Labels format on their website. In fact, that's most likely part of the issue, though I haven't investigated it too much yet.
