Seems I'm alone here with not having much issues with running firefox.
Currently I have *two* instances running with total of ~60 tabs (with lazy
loading tho, not all tabs fully loaded) and also qutebrowser with 18 tabs.
This is my current cpu/mem usage:
103 processes: 1 running, 102 sleeping
CPU: 27.0% user, 0.0% nice, 1.6% system, 0.6% interrupt, 70.8% idle
Mem: 3157M Active, 3341M Inact, 563M Laundry, 1011M Wired, 490M Buf, 3855M Free
Swap: 14G Total, 14G Free
Never seen swapping caused by firefox. Some of the opened tabs are: slack,
discord, rocket chat, twitter, linkedIn. Tho only extensions I use are uBlock
origin, Disconnect and vimium. Also not using any desktop env, only
I'm still on 11.4-RELEASE-p4.
