Playing videos on YouTube and on twitch causes excessive overheating and fans always at maximum

more options

When I watch a video on twitch or sometimes on youtube, after a while the computer heats up a lot and the fan starts spinning faster than usual. This only happens to me on Firefox and rarely on Chrome (on safari no). It happens on the MacBook Air 2018

I have a MacBook Pro 2017 and while using Firefox... the same occurs to me as well. When viewing YT or Twitch, the computer heats up and fans spin. I do NOT have the issue while using Safari. I want to continue to use Firefox, but may switch back to Safari until issue resolved.
