Firefox is almost always cranking away at 250-270k resources (sometimes higher) even when I'm doing nothing with it short of having it running. My question is, is this normal? Necessary? If so, why? Seems absurd... insanely inefficient.

It's normal, because Firefox has become an absurdly hungry resource hog. Also, it doesn't even do it while being smooth, like chrome does, at least while chrome is using 500mb of ram, you can load pages properly. After 3.8 Firefox became the disgusting resource hog that it is now.
