I'm trying to troubleshoot some poor firefox performance. The following page:

carnap.io/book/1

is extremely slow to load in firefox (tested on linux and mac, firefox 64.0), pegging one of the firefox child processes at 99% cpu for several seconds. The same page loads quickly in both chrome and webkit. The cause, I suspect, is some relatively heavy js (about 45 MB). It's not the transfer of the JS, since this happens when even once the JS is cached.

So, sub-questions:

A. Why is this happening? B. Can it be fixed? If so, how? C. If this isn't the right forum, is there a better place to ask?
