I have a memory leak with FF and my Mac
I have a memory leak. Whenever FF is loaded, the memory goes up and up and up. If I keep it up for long enough I get page outs and then longer it will slow down so much I have to reboot. The only add-ons I have are stumble, lastpass and evernote. I realize you will all say to disable them, but a better solution would be to try to fix it since I actually WANT to use these add-ons with firefox. I don't have the problem with the one at work although that's a PC and some of the addons are different there. Any suggestions?
See screen shot for the leak

Here's the screen shot. Apparently can't upload pics on the initial post.
Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
High Memory Usage
Firefox Consumes a lot of CPU Resources
Check and tell if its working.
