Is the fan making noise? That would be a maintenance issue.

Is the fan running fast a lot? That would be a heat issue. This could be caused by several things.

Buy a can of compressed air, and blow out the air ducts.

The CPU is being overworked.

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Close and restart Firefox after modifying the setting to make the change effective.

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.
