I'm the "Mark" that participated in that Bug report (comments 14 & 16).

I remember back three decades ago installing an ad blocker because "rich 
content" ads were consuming too many resources and blocking the 
rendering of the web page until the "rich content" had finished playing. 
It's ironic that today ads are still consuming too many resources, even 
when our Internet connection is 100,000 times faster, as well as faster 
and larger computer systems.

At least that bug report got a priority of P3, which means they haven't 
forgotten about it yet. I doubt it will get any traction before the 
teething problems of the Firefox Quantum 57 rollout is complete.
