Huge RAM consumption, over time

I looked at various tips on how to solve a RAM problem. But I don't understand why my firefox takes about 800MB of RAM after startup, but sometimes after the time of use it suddenly takes 16GB of RAM. Does Mozilla not have a tool to track which part of Firefox uses so much RAM?

Adblock Plus is a known RAM eater. Try to install uBlock Origin instead of it.

Photo 2 shows that everything is OK in Firefox but it consumes 16GB of memory and is terribly slow. The PC has 32GB of memory.

I'm testing the uBlock Origin, and it looks good. Thanks for advice. Sadly, Firefox does not have a tool that shows which part of the browser consumes how much RAM.
