Taking up too much memory and tried many solutions
Having just 1 tab open -- my gmail -- firefox is taking nearly 1GB of memory. Opening an empty tab pushes to memory used over 1GB. Also there are 12 listed tabs in the Task Manager.
I already took multiple steps. Cleared cache and cookies. Put in troubleshoot mode and refreshed. Minimized memory usage via about:memory.

What addons do you have?
You can check the about:memory and about:processes pages for info about all processes. See also the about:unloads page for info about the tabs.
The Firefox Task Manager will show what resources tabs and add-ons are using. about:performance or Task Manager under Tools or More tools in the menus. This support article may be of some help.
