I've observed this as well.  I am not sure if it's just firefox or some 
of the webapp's i have to use for work (gsuite/google docs, atlassian 
and other javascript heavy sites).

i can't even run slack in firefox as it slows down and eventually causes 
my system to start swapping.

regardless i've been needing to restart firefox usually by midweek to 
get memory free'd up so the system doesn't go down.
