Would a big DigitalOcean server be good for compiling stuff? like Firefox from source? It owuld be perfect since it’s billed hourly.

I do the same for Gitlab & Node…

I routinely build the NetBSD source tree by spinning up huge instances for an hour or two. Saves me a lot of time.

Yes—in general the servers are good for compiling things. For example, the hourly billing could be a win for setting up a firefox daily build.
