    That is okay RAM usage, as your Page Outs (Swap) are not that big.

    Though FF is quite hungry, but I can do that with Safari too with many, many tabs.

    You have inactive ram. This allows recently opened programs to be accessed faster. Nothing to worry about considering it is about 3gb, if you want to look at that as "free ram".
