Firefox, DeFi, Dapps, and a hot hanging laptop.

Browser: Firefox 89.0

Injector: Metamask 9.5.9

Laptop: Asus G14 Ryzen 9 4900HS w/ 16GB RAM

OS: Windows 10 64-Bit

Hey folks. I can not seem to find any information on this issue for the life of me. I run a lot of open tabs with a myriad of DeFi dapps across multiple blockchains. I'm using Metamask as the web3 injector and everything seems to run swimmingly at first, but the longer I get into sessions, the more I notice my laptop getting warm to hot. Task manager occasionally shows Firefox child processors maxing out single-cores, and force quitting those will crash the respective tab(s), cool down the laptop, and restore performance, but it won't often be long before I notice that I'm back to having hot thighs.

I've added Auto Tab Discard to try and unload tabs I'm not using, but it seems that if I'm working in any dapps, even if the others are discarded/asleep, it'll start warming up again. I can't find out if its Firefox, Metamask, or some other issue, let alone how to resolve it. I was thinking of trying Brave browser, but I wanted to see if this was a familiar issue to anyone before migrating everything over to a new browser where the same issues might exist.

Thank you for any information anyone may have.
