With 8 tabs open, Windows task manager shows 58% CPU and 1279 MB memory use in 12 processes. The built in Firefox task manager shows less than 300 MB and mostly "low" energy impact. Why is there such a discrepancy between the two task reports?

Screenshots explain this better

Hello!

For the past few days my Firefox randomly crashes, specifically - tab crashes. Sometimes it is local news website, there was one fullscreen video that crashed that tab 2 times, and even YouTube tab has crashed.

If it helps, here is last few crash reports: bp-8aa70181-48fc-4c64-a45e-615130200612 bp-1f78d4a1-c489-4e46-bd7e-11b950200612 bp-05cb6a6c-8863-43ca-a395-d509d0200612 bp-46c4dd28-10bc-4015-8ea9-89fd80200612 bp-4b4186f4-6ee9-4bf0-96e9-3331c0200612 bp-986950ea-39d9-4cb5-84d6-1a7460200612 bp-90d58c69-469e-4af4-b861-c41940200612 bp-70ab3d45-0433-42d8-acd7-7700b0200612 bp-d1bb4768-61bc-4a2e-98c7-40c810200612

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?
