Extremely high RAM usage

Hello everyone.

I have an Alienware 15R3 with 16GB of RAM + Windows 10 ( with lastest updates). Since the last Firefox update to version 59.0.3, every time I play a video from Youtube or any other video platforms, it consumes up to 6.5GB of RAM, no matter if video is 4K, 1080p or 144p. Also, fullscreen mode is unaccesable and trying to close the tab takes to long. In case you wonder, this occurs with only one tab open, the one used to play the video, no more programs, no more tabs or downloads, nor extensions added neither.

I've test the same videos and platforms in Edge without problems and no high ram usage (~800MB). ¿Is there a solution for this?
