Password protect one tab

Is it possible to password protect one specific tab?

I have a tab with my gmail open, and I use google to login to other sites, so it is sensitive. Some months ago my computer was remotely hacked and someone could get into my mail through firefox when I was not using it. I would prefer not having to log out every other minute and keep receiving email notifications, but make it impossible for someone to open that tab and poke around.

Note: I use Malwarebytes Premium since then, so maybe this is no longer necessary.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed free to use malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

After the above, make sure to change all passwords on every website. Also, make sure your user information on those sites was not changed.
