Internet browsing apps seem to be in a sorry state of affairs as of the last year or so. Well... Firefox is anyway. The blame can't be squarely placed on bugs in OSX 10.13 I don't think because I see these issues in every earlier OSX even back to the solid and stable 10.6.8. I'm pretty sure a big part of this is buggy poorly written Youtube scripts battling adblock and crashing (memory leaks seems to be a big one here). Running 10.6.8, I will need to flat out quit and restart Firefox after a few Youtube videos when they suddenly stop playing. 10.13.3 probably has whatever resources that stuff needs to run so it doesn't just hang. I happen to be using a machine grossly overpowered for just internet browsing so it powers through it like nothing's wrong but I'd still like to get to the bottom of this if possible. It isn't reasonable to see 20% CPU use and almost 6GB ram used on a quad core i7. On an older but faster C2D you'll see the same almost 6GB ram use and over 50% CPU use and get actual noticeable lags here and there. I got turned off by Google Chrome initially with all the call home stuff. I've caught a few glimpses of Safari when downloading Firefox on a clean install that didn't exactly come across as inviting. If this is all adblock related, are there any better options?
