It would have been nice if they had even made an attempt at making webext somewhat comparable in functionality to XUL.

Instead, most of the addons that were huge draws to Firefox are fucking dead because Mozilla are fucking braindead morons that can't focus on the big addons like DTA and TMP and spend most of their time working on fucking theming.

They fired the guy that wrote Mozilla and Javascript and then they started posting videos of a guy recording a tranny clothes shopping with his phone to demonstrate that they were privacy oriented.

When that didn't fly so well they took it down and put up some shit with a macbook and a cat.

Nobody liked that either so they stopped putting videos on the new tab page.

Then they started posting rainbow comfy socks and pony shit but nobody liked that either.

Right after Eich left and all the shitty news outlets like buzzfeed and verge were proclaiming victory for LGBTQ Mozilla started a campaign about privacy, starring a tranny shopping in a store, a CIS white guy goes up to one of the stores glass windows and starts filming the tranny with his cellphone, ostensibly harassing him (her) or some shit. They pan back to the tranny who notices he (she) is being filmed and starts making an angry disgusted face.

Literally couldn't make this shit up, they had the video full page on the browser welcome window on install for at least a day maybe two.

Waterfox is indeed not that great with managing memory.
You don't need to restart the browser. You need to open about:memory and click memory minimization. You can have your task manager open to monitor the amount of RAM it uses at any given time.
You may also install the addon Free Memory 2.0 which allows you to minimize memory without having to open the page.

That's kinda pointless since they demonstrate that they can stealthily install whatever the fuck they want, even if they know it goes against your explicitly expressed wishes (you turn off telemetry and they send you telemetry anyway).

The current extension for me is fucking tree style tabs. I cannot live without it and now it's fucking huge, hard to customize properly, and flatout hasn't even worked properly since webextensions were mandatory.

The entire point of using Firefox for me was to make it my own browser, however I want. And version after version they have chipped away at this and shoehorned me into the out of the box configuration, which is fucking unproductive dogshit. And there's no alternative to jump ship to unless you want to rely on third party forks that could vanish overnight because they can't keep up with patches of their own or backporting.
