Just out of curiosity, are you using 64bit Flash? I am seeing similar
behavior with

Firefox 64bit
Flash 64bit 10.1 r85

As soon as I disable flash the problem disappears altogether.

I did not see the original request for help, so I don't now how similar the
issues are, but food for thought at least.
