The figure may not necessarily be high depending what you are doing with firefox. Do you know how much RAM is installed on your computer ?

The report is apparently being generated by AVG software, you will need to consult the AVG manual or its faq/site/forum if you want to turn off such notifications.

Note if you go to about:memory in the firefox location bar it will generate a report that you may find useful. See also Firefox uses too much memory (RAM) - How to fix
