Hours after exiting firefox, the application continues to run processes and hold on to the memory it was using when I exited the application. The only way to free the memory is to key the processes via Task Manager

Use the menu command Quit (ctl+q).

That's <Control><Shift> Q

Not on my browser. It's ctl+q. Must be different on Windows.
