Firefox Memory Issues

Does anyone else have huge memory issues with Firefox? I know my Macbook is a bit light on RAM (1GB), but Firefox is ridiculously sloppy with its memory usage. Things were running a bit sluggish earlier – Firefox was eating 450MB of real memory and 2.7GB of virtual.
I realize I’m a bit of a power user and open a bunch of tabs at once, but I do try to keep it under 25 or so, and I close them as soon as I’m finished. It really shouldn’t be quite so bad.
I did a bit of digging and implemented these tips to try to reduce usage. Any other tips I should know about?
