There was no end in site either the space used started to increase faster the longer it was left open, as after I took that screenshot it was above 7GB and when I went to close the page it was above 8.

I went to the exact page TC had in his screenshot and just to make sure it wasn't something on the page doing something I enabled the video so it could play (even though I didn't care about the blah sounding chick talking about latin american stuff for some reason)...

This is what I saw in Task manager:

that's 365916K for Palemoon and 55928K for the plugin container/video player.

Not that huge... so whatever it is, it's not the website doing it, unless maybe you had ads enabled or javascript enabled by default and then it could have been doing all sorts of stuff in the background.
