I've been noticing something the past month or two

Previously I'd leave Firefox running for 3-4 weeks before it would get slow and I'd need to restart it. Lately I've needed to restart it a couple times a week, but I haven't updated it since early June. Makes me wonder if at some point I'm visiting a site with one of these Javascript miners, and it is somehow continuing to run in the background even after I've closed the tab/window for the site. Is that possible? Any way to tell?
