Firefox 69 uses significantly more memory at idle than Chrome 70. (Ubuntu 18.04.3 and LXDE)

Firefox 69 with one tab open, my PC is using 1355mb of memory. (No other applications running).

Chrome 70 with one tab open, my PC is using 796mb of memory. (No other applications running).

That is quite a difference. I prefer Firefox to Chrome, but I really wish Firefox would manage my resources better when using them.
