I'm pissed of. HOW??? HOW??? How a single browser can take 90% of the memory until freezing your PC, ON A LINUX MINT FOR GOD SAKE! With 16GB Memory!

I saw people defending this saying that "uuuh, mozilla takes advantage of-" BS! It doesn't take advantage of nothing, it only wastes your ram and your time.

HOW DO I LIMIT THE RAM USAGE? I DON'T WANT FANCY PERFORMANCE TABS I WANT A DIRECT ANSWER ON HOW TO STOP FIREFOX WASTING MY RAM

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.

I agree with Luan. Firefox needs a limit on memory usage! I was developing a tiny web page on Linux (PopOS) and accidentally created an endless loop in Javascript that ate memory (by growing an array). My entire OS became inoperable and had to be hard-rebooted. This should not happen due to Javascript (a sandboxed browser language), running in a web page (a sandboxed app) running in a Firefox browser that is supposed to protect users from the world wild web. One errant line of legal Javascript in HTML should not equate to a denial-of-service attack.
