Firefox using too much memory after an update

Since I updated to firefox 14, it started using WAY too much memory, which is 2GB+. This has never happened to me, and none of the solutions on the website have helped me. It starts off normally at about 80 MBs and then starts growing and growing. I have to restart firefox about twice an hour or more.

I also recently downgraded my flash player to a recommended version on this website since the latest version crashes too much, that was about the time when I updated firefox, not sure if that might be why this is happening EDIT: Updated to latest version of flash again. Memory usage is still high
