EDIT2: you guys know you can tell FF how much ram it can use right? lol
according to conky, which uses percentages, you have 1.90gb of total system ram. firefox open with 7 tabs, is using 30% of that ram which anyone with simple math skills can figure out = 615mb of ram.
the highest ram section and your total system ram usage in in conky is in conflict, you have something setup incorrectly in there imho, as your FF can not be using more ram, than it says your entire system is using.
so your "top 4" in your highest mem section is at follows:
firefox = 615mb
x = 300mb
java = 39mb
so with those you are roughly at 48% of total system ram...more than likely much more when you toss on cairo-dock, skype and whatever else you are running. post your conky config so we can take a look at it, see if we can spot your problem.
