If you know for sure it is FF using excess RAM(memory), make sure you are updated to the latest version, which is 43.01. Also check extensions...
click 3 bars > addons > extensions. There should be nothing there but what you put there. If you did not put it there, remove it. Or disable it.
If it's empty, that's good too.
Something else you might consider is an addon called Disconnect. It will not block ads, but it does block trackers, which speeds up the loading of web
pages. You can type it in the search box under extensions, and it is usually the first one up. I guarantee it to be safe, and also removable if it is
no longer wanted.
If none of that helps, your problem may not be FF. And you might want to download
to your desktop, and see what it finds. It's specifically meant to find
adware/junkware an anti-virus won't.
