MSI GP70-2OD connected to Pioneer VSX-820/LG 55LM6700 via HDMI
1TB hybrid HD with 2+ partions (C: 338 GB free, D:285 GB free)
Windows 8.1 with all current updates (GWX "patch" removed)
FF 39.0 with Adblock Plus, IE tab 2, LastPass, YouTube HD, Better Privacy and about:addons-memory addons installed and active
Malwarebytes Premium active
Since I stupidily "upgraded" to 8.1 (which should actually be called 9 since it includes MAJOR revisions but I digress) I've had more than a few issues. I also had the yourtv.link infestation which Malwarebytes support was able to resolve.
So, almost every day after the computer has been idle for more than an hour (I have not tried to determine a specific amount of time) and I turn my monitor back on there will be a message saying that Windows is low on memory and that I should close programs. Usually Firefox is listed as the victim.
Bringing up Task manager and keying onto memory shows a somewhat normal structure

Firefox has crashed about 15 times in the past 5 days. While watching NASCAR streaming on NBCSports, running streaming in-car video live race updates (as well as the usual mail, calendar, start page) it crashed 4 times. Chrome was also running at the time with live in-car audio (did not crash). I have done this dozens of times this year without crashes or issues until recently.
I have tested the RAM, removed and cleaned the DIMMs. I'm just lost as to the culprit. I will be moving to Windows 10 but I need this issue solved first. I will not upgrade an operating system while I have ongoing issues (been there, done that disastrously).
Oh yeah, I also went to the Intel page and downloaded the latest HD4000 drivers it recommended for my system
