Firefox is experiencing a huge memory leak which persists after reinstallation. After 5 minutes, browser is consuming 15+ GB of RAM.

I'm using selenium webdriver with Firefox to download a large amount of content. After 5 minutes or so and visiting roughly 20-30 pages, Firefox's memory consumption balloons to over 15 GB of RAM or more. I've tried setting preferences to allow no caching, no history retention, etc. At one point I had 20+ GB of RAM in the page file, making my computer run horrendously slow. Note that I'm running an older version of Firefox because of Selenium, but problem persists with newest version (outside of selenium) as well.
I'm on Mac OS X 10.11 (fully updated) and running 32 GB of RAM. I viewed the console and Firefox cites a possible memory leak:
firefox-bin: notify name "com.apple.system.powersources.timeremaining" has been registered 20 times - this may be a leak
Earlier today, I had the same message with over 1200 registrations. I've tried to find this file to delete it but have not been successful.

Firefox crashed this morning. Since I restarted it, a weird thing is happening. When I go to Firefox, my OUTLOOK screen zooms to the left side, off the screen. It is still there and I can click on the icon and get it back, but it never used to do this. I want all the windows that I have open to stay visible on the screen at all times, until I physically close or minimize them. Thanks

After an update (a few updates ago, I think it was to version 45, or one of the releases within that) I started having issues with some secure sites in Firefox - for most, I would get an error saying the connection was reset, some say the certificate is invalid and in the case of salesforce, their server spits out an error saying I have an outdated browser and does not meet their security requirements.
I followed the information in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/unable-access-secure-https-sites-firefox-43 even though I was pretty sure the problem started well after v43, but did not seem from the tests described that this was the issue affecting me.
Then I tried the reset firefox function as suggested which worked - all sites I had previously had a problem with were loading - great! Unfortunately, that hasn't seemed to have lasted for long - I kept the setup fairly vanilla - the only add-ons I've installed are 1-password helper and evernote web clipper. After installign them I was having no issues, but now today 4-5 days later I am again experiencing the same issues.
One strange thing I have noticed that has occurred around the same time is the fact that my book marks seem to keep resetting - I make changes today and then they're back to how they were previously when I next start the browser - not sure if maybe it's sync messing with something and causing this, which could also be causing the SSL issue to come back? Not even sure how that could happen, but just wondering?
Any other ideas? Between the issues loading critical sites and my book marks disappearing, my loyalty to the browser I've used for years is starting to dwindle :(

We need to use Firefox 33.0.1 for testing, but every time my tools use Firefox, the next time I find it has upgraded to 45.
In preferences I have set to never update, turned off search engine updates, and in the config page, have made sure the app.update.auto/enabled/silent are all false.
I am running on a Mac 10.11, I have renamed my original latest Firefox installation, and install the oldest in the default path for our tools to detect.
I see the maintenance service only exists for Windows computers, and I do not see any update folders in Firefox's application or Application Support directories.
This update will happen even when I don't restart my computer, or open Firefox manually in between test runs.
