      After using Firefox for some time, it starts using a lot of CPU process or RAM. ... If Firefox runs faster in Safe Mode, then you know the problem lies in one of the add-ons or plugins. Disable all add-ons, and restart Firefox.

I use a patch for system harfbuzz and system graphite2, so the first thing I did was diff the sources to see if anything relevant to that or the other system versions had changed - no. Started the build, left it. From time to time checked, still building. Eventually used 'top', at that point 'ld' was running so it was only using 100% cpu and finished shortly after.

          This is a Ryzen 1300X, with beta20 and -j4 the build and install had taken under 47 minutes. With 62.0 release, almost 131 minutes for ./mach build. Installed that, works fine, but thought I'd done something wrong in the build, or maybe --verbose was slowing it. Fresh source, dropped caches, retried without the patch : still building, not using more than 100% CPU (i.e. only one core) in either rustc or cc1plus, MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS=-j4 definitely exported.

          LFS/BLFS-8.3, gcc-8.2.0, llvm/clang 6.0.1, rustc-1.25.0. Kernel, if it matters, is 4.18.3 (and all are unchanged since I built beta20).
          This is about 63.0 As soon as I upgraded (beta channel) from 62.0 to 63.0 I noticed a considerable performance slowdown, especially related to the opening of web pages.
          Every time it has to connect to a URL, in the current tab or in a new one, the browser seems to... wait quite a lot (say 8-10 seconds) for something, while nothing seems to happen apart from the dot in the tab title moving back and forth.
          This did not occur with the previous releases and does not happen with other browsers, which keep loading pages as fast (or slow, depending on points of view) as usual. So that know, in my computer at least, Firefox has turned from being definitely the fastest browser to being definitely the slowest.
