Is it my time to say GOODBYE to Firefox?

more options

I have stated this issue once before after trying to find a solution by myself.

My query: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363376

Whenever I boot up my laptop, firefox starts running in the background taking up a lot of memory space and cpu utilization. I have been with ffirefox since I started using laptops which is 7-8 years back. I never thought of switching browser or finding an alternative of firefox until for some months the issue is occurring. Now I am really annoyed to open up task manager every time and close firefox which is running in the backgroud. I have seen nothing unusual in the "about:performance" tab of firefox.

Please help me to continue my journey with firefox.
