Memory leak in Firefox.

I am a software engineer. I love Firefox but I believe that a memory leak may have developed. The problem goes back a couple of months. I have one instance of Firefox open with three tabs opened but the task manager shows a large number of instances of Firefox being open and using a lot of memory. Currently there are nine instances of Firefox shown in the task manager. Look at the screen shot of the task manager that I uploaded.

I often have a lot of tabs open but I rebooted and opened a new instance of 

Firefox with only 3 tabs. I did open a new private window at the same time as the session I explained above but then I closed the private window. The memory leak might be the private window remaining in memory after it was closed. My OS is Windows 7. Yeah I know MS has stopped supporting it but I hate up dating the OS.

Thanks, Bill Smith
