Is it effective to decrease Gnome Shell’s nice?

I’m having some problems where gnome shell will freeze because of a application (usually firefox or discordapp).
Does decreasing it’s nice to something around -1 will make it not freeze even when under high load from some application?
My main goal is raising the desktop responsiveness under load.

also may be of note that I have no swap.
