Question Why doesn't Firefox release memory?

I have like 10 videos open in Firefox tabs, I close them all and very little memory gets freed up. Why is that?

But that's not normal behavior for a program, right? If I closed these tabs which were holding video files (so, presumably, a lot of memory), that should register in Task Manager as less memory being used?
