Why Firefox to use too much memory.
Spite only open few tabs but Firefox used memory up to 1 GB.
Although I close the tab down, memory used is not reduced but increases when open following tabs.
Addition a few extension are enabled. Remember that before updating to Firefox 20 never had these problems before.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
- Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
- Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
- Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
- Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

If I restart Firefox, and then I had to add and customize extension like the first. Because it is the most convenient for me and it's not very customizable. (View as image.)
Are you sure. Problem will be gone.

I think of the Reset feature as a shortcut for users who don't have the time or patience for troubleshooting. Since you have a good reason to defer a Reset, could you try a couple other tests?
First, could you also try Firefox's Safe Mode? That's a standard diagnostic tool to bypass interference by extensions (and some custom settings). More info: Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode.
You can restart Firefox in Safe Mode using
Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
In the dialog, click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Reset)
Safe mode does not automatically disable plugins. If you want to rule some of those out as well, you can disable them here:
orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons > Plugins category
Reset fixes 90+% of Firefox problems with no further troubleshooting. Because you have so many add-ons, it's likely that 1 or more of them is causing the issue in Firefox. You can write them down (or take a screenshot) then do a Reset, then reinstall your add-ons one at a time. That's what I would suggest at this point in time.
You could also download installers for the extensions and themes that you use and save them as backups. That makes reinstallation of addons much easier.
