Firefox works poorly on phone with 2GB of memory
I'm running version 87.0.0-rc.1 on my phone (Galaxy J7, android version 9). It has 2GB of memory and 16 GB of storage. I'm running AdGuard adblocker add-on, but same issues without that add-on.
I find that Firefox crashes moderately often when showing videos. I ran this one in full-screen mode, and it crashed before it cycled through 10 times.
Also, I find it highly frustrating that when I tap my Android home button while on a web page, and then go immediately back to Firefox, the web page I was viewing does a full refresh, which often requires me to log in again (private viewing). Example web page that refreshes is:
It seems to me that these both may be related to internal Firefox memory management issues. I have an old phone running Android 7 that has 2.5GB of memory, and it does not seem to have these issues, and it has far fewer other apps running on it.
