Yeah..nah. Time to pull the ripcord.
I came back to Firefox - which was my preferred browser for many years - because Chrome is a big fat memory hog, and would spend quite a while swapping pages into memory if it had been out of focus for a while. Opinions at the time varied widely, but suggested Firefox was more efficient.
Nope.. Firefox is at least as bad. And worse; it can't maintain a connection to Gmail which forces me to completely restart the browser every day. Mention this to Mozilla support and all you get from the devs is, "I don't experience this (on my high-end dev system) so it can't exist". Yeah, I'm running Firefox in the 2GB left over on my 8GB laptop - how hard can it be to write efficient code.. memory hog or slightly worse memory hog isn't much of a difference to me.
And of course I cant get the extensibility I used to have; and the constant pestering every-single-time the browser gets focus to do an upgrade. Going back to Chrome; though I expect things to get shaken up for the better soon enough (so over this old-skool grind with poorly functional, slow and unreliable software: bring on the AI)

Sounds more like corrupted install or something else is happening and considering no one here can see or know what's installed on your computer no one can help here. I use Edge, Chrome, FF and have no internet or bandwidth issues. So unless others can replicate step by step your issue there nothing more anyone reading can figure what is going on here. Also this is a user help forum not a support ticket fixit request.
8GB of ram... smh Time to upgrade in today's world of BIG APPS! I have a laptop running Win7 with 32gb of ram and have no issues. What laptop are you running? What is the max ram your computer can hold? You should hit this site and see what your options are. https://www.crucial.com/store/systemscanner Post the specs about your ram.
