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

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