Why would firefox be using so much memory that the application itself freezes to the point where I have to force the program to end?

For the past few days, I've been doing research for a presentation that I am doing for college. As I've been using Firefox, the program freezes to the point where I have to force the program to terminate. I have a computer with 8 gigs of ram and an i5 quad core processor running at 2.8 ghz. There are no viruses or spyware on the system, and there isn't anything else running. There are no addons applied to my browser, and no personas. There should be no memory issues to the point where an internet browser would freeze this badly.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
