I haven't had any similar issues so fare (Firefox is my main browser). However, my only Add ons are uMatrix + uBlock Origin, and I've enabled the "Never remember history" options in settings so Firefox will basically clear user data on each exit.

Have you tried using a fresh profile with default settings and without your Add-ons for a while, to see if this fixes the issue? Try firefox -p from the command line to open the profile chooser, and create a new profile. The profile is where your settings, history, bookmarks etc. are kept, so a new profile will basically mean factory reset, but with the option to switch back to your old profile at any time.
