how avoid firefox takes 100 times more resources than computer have ?
Sometimes with nothing that predicts , Firefoz start eating all resources of my computer , and I can't work anymore until a cold shutdown , what it annoy me , is the Firefox can try allocate 0,4 Tera bytes of memory when my computer just have 4 GB bytes .
ulimit -Sv 10000000  seems that limit Firefox to ought all memory , but can't Firefox be more intelligent ?
More info local news tend to have lots of ads I use ABP (ad block plus) but sometimes they have so many scripts that seems they enter in loop, but Firefox should limit the consume of the resources . Another info this is not nothing I see this problem for at least 4 years , I expect that Firefox Quantum solve the problem, now that I use 66.0.3 without any legacy plugin this still happens or it is worst .
ulimit -a core file size (blocks, -c) unlimited data seg size (kbytes, -d) unlimited scheduling priority (-e) 0 file size (blocks, -f) unlimited pending signals (-i) 15072 max locked memory (kbytes, -l) 16384 max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited open files (-n) 1024 pipe size (512 bytes, -p) 8 POSIX message queues (bytes, -q) 819200 real-time priority (-r) 0 stack size (kbytes, -s) 8192 cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited max user processes (-u) 15072 virtual memory (kbytes, -v) unlimited file locks (-x) unlimited

ABP is known to use a lot of resource. If that is the case then you can give uBlock Origin a try to see whether this makes a difference.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
