Please, update your browser to the latest version (FF36) and if you hit this issue again, save and attach a memory report from the page about:memory. Be sure it's reproducible in safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode) or with a fresh profile (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles) because add-ons might be faulty.

Hi Loic Will update the FF36 and try to run it in safe mode as you suggested. Please bear with my next response.
