Using Firefox on Mac. Usually can have many tabs open with no problem, now my Mac tells me to shut down applications, even with only 4 Firefox tabs open.
I only had 4 tabs open now, whereas one of them was a TV-show streaming site, and my Mac still told me to shut down applications. Firefox was using 1,5gb or something according to the error notification. I usually have like 30 tabs open. Tried yesterday to use Safari to stream stuff on PrimeVideo, and got no errors.
