After several days running, this morning it locked as soon as I
changed workspaces. I noticed kswapd0 was busy long time, and that
firefox had about 10 gigs of virtual memory. The disk activity led
was solid blue. I couldn't find out more, the machine froze and had
to be hard rebooted.

It's probably not the answer you are looking for, but I'll propose it

Disable your swap.

Not viable.

This minute I have 5 GB of swap in use. Without swap, the system would
simple not work, several programs I use would be killed.

[1] My previous laptop had 4 GB RAM, this one 16 GB - both had a full
server stack (LAMP, Dovecot etc.) + KDE running

But I have only 8.

Cheers / Saludos,
