When I open multiple tabs (2 or more) or even when I initially just open a single tab but then eventually open others, Firefox starts to suck my RAM dry and won't let me navigate. Sometimes I can manage to have multiple tabs open but eventually I get a sudden attack on my RAM. Other than a restart I have no clue what else to do. I haven't installed any Addons recently so I'm confused why this is happening. Any advice is appreciated.

I've performed a system restore and I have re-installed Firefox but the problem persists. When I use Opera as my browser I do not encounter any issues. If anyone can recommend something else I can try please let me know.

Issue was resolved by resetting Mozilla. Was able to keep bookmarks but Addons had to be manually re-installed. If the problem returns at least I'll be able to more readily identify the culprit. Hope this helps anyone else who has this hiccup.

I believe that the proble was with some of your Addons.
Were all of them updated and suited the FF version. I had the same problem and managed to solve it with the help of reinstalling some of my addons.
