Had some problems with windows and decided to give Linux/Manjaro a try and so far I'm actually really liking it. However, I have a problem with Firefox using half or more of my available RAM.
I have roughly 7GB available for the system (Ryzen 2400G - 1GB is used for the APU) and whenever I launch a firefox browser, 2-3GB is immediately taken up by web-services, while Firefox is using another +500mb.
With only 7GB available and intentions of running Android Studio, Emulators etc. that's causing the RAM to be filled immediately.
Obviously, it only get worse the more thing I open in my browser, but the above numbers are with 1 to 4 tabs open...
There must be some way to minimize this usage - Even Chrome wasn't that bad when I ran it on Windows.
What can I do?
Thanks in advance.
