How do I get Firefox to use less memory? None of the answers I've found online work. I'm ready to go back to IE!

I like to keep several tabs open while I'm working. I have friends who do this with no noticeable effect on their computer speed. My Task Manager consistently shows a huge amount of memory being used by firefox, increasing as I keep my browser open. Closing tabs doesn't help, and I've tried about a dozen "fixes" that I've found online. Thanks for your help.
