Windows 7: Firefox RAM Allocation?

Firefox RAM Allocation?

Hello guys, I was wondering if you could give me a hand here.

Currently I have a dual monitor set up on my computer, and I've come to notice this.
Whenever I am watching a video on youtube in monitor 1, and navigate/browse in number 2 the video will lag for a couple of seconds before going back to normal.

I had never noticed this before with a single monitor,as obviously.. by the time I went back to the video the lag had already occurred. Additionally, back when I used to have one monitor and sometimes I'd browse on one half of the monitor, and watch videos on the other half, it would not happen either.

Could this have to do with the speed in which firefox allocates ram to perform these actions?
What could I do about it?

Thanks for your time.
