    you should have the primary process, the content processes exact to the process count + 1 as a gpu process on a stock install.

    Installs with extensions will have additional processes.

    in a new process, you will have

    Parent | Content +1 | Gpu process

    Content will pre-open a new process up to the limit.

    With extensions

    Parent | Content +1 | Gpu process | Extensions (equal to number of extensions)

    I have 14, which is

    Parent | 8 content tabs | GPU process | 4 extensions

    And this drops to 7 at some point (extension tasks complete?)

    PS: about: screens no longer load as parent content, they are in the first content process

    I had to turn it off, I had some crazy amount of instances of FF, like 15-20 and I got back the GUI core count edit option.

    it's in the end if you open about 100 pages you will end up spending a lot more ram, right

    I have about 40 tabs open most times (under50). What I didn't like was a lot of those FF.exe were set to idle priority so why have so many running. now I see about half of them idling with 11 of them.

    As far as memory total use, I am not sure it changes much, probably a little more with more instances running but I didn't check that.

    im sure in time they optimize that, for what i seen though one proccess launched the process remain till firefoxe is closed, if the extra process where shut down once not need it would much better.

    I have 10 open right now from just looking at Guru3d forums and check gamespot website. and i normal only have 1 or 2 tabs open and when I done i close said tabs

    hmm lockwise or what ever it called is getting re-absorbed into firefox. I dont use Firefox on iPhone/iPad I use safari cause it allows me to actual block ads. so i just use lockwise when I need one user/pass on thse devices. I never even installed firefox on them for prior reason.

    Wonder if the app will continues to work even if it being abandoned and pulled from the store?

    Question for those that use Firefox on iOS does it block Ad like Adguard + Safari does in iOS is still not working correctly? cause I really need my dad to stop chaning password on his iphone/ipad cause they dont get update to his firefox account that use on his pc and then he forget that he changed it when he on is PC and there endless cycle of him not now his password and chaning them.

    if Firefox on iOS final blocks ads like Adguard + safari does I can tell him to just firefox and solve whole mess once and for all.

    Anyone else been having some really odd issues with FF recently? It seems to stop loading new webpages, you close the software and reopen it only to be told that the software is still running and not responding. Hit the confirm button to close the non responding program, it then reopens the browser and suddenly starts loading websites again.

    Something else I just noticed is that FF has a memory leak you could drive a bus through.

    *edit

    Some testing seems that the issues I am having are a combination of Firefox not playing well with Malware Bytes. Disabling MW seems to resolve the memory and webpage loading issue, however these issuse only occur when using FF. I tried it with whatever MS calls it's default explorer and don;t have any issues at all.

    Thanks maur0 :)

    Only issues i get odd time, is sometimes when closing it, after a bit, i'll get the firefox has crashed box appear, and sometimes when i close it, it still runs, as when i close and reopen, it pops up saying its still running, do you want to close before before re-opening, so now, when i close it down, i always check the TM to see if its still running, and if so, i just end the process, its rare that one though, so doesn't bother me much :p

    I've given it a try and it doesn't make any difference. The issue has made using FF impossible to use, I am lucky if I can have it open for five minutes before it completely stops working. It's left me with two options; dump MB or dump FF. I've opted for the later and switched to MS Edge for now.

    After I updated to v96.0 I had issues with FF hanging then crashing (submitted crash report) after closing FF on Windows 10 21H2 Build 1466

    Troubleshooting;

    1. Refresh Firefox = would not complete as it would hang on close and not restart
    2. Remove all add-ones/extensions manually = no change
    3. Clear cache = no change
    4. Remove my profile manually** and start with a new profile = Firefox opens and closes twice but after closing for the third time it would hang, deleted profile again, same result
    **Deleted folders;
    C:\Users\<User-name>\AppData\Local\Mozilla
    C:\Users\<User-name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla
    5. Uninstalled then re-installed FF 96.0 x64 = Firefox opens and closes twice but after closing for the third time it would hang, deleted profile again, same result
    6. Uninstall 64-bit version and try 32-bit version = Firefox opens and closes twice but after closing for the third time it would hang, deleted profile again, same result
    7. Installed FF 97 Beta = Firefox opens and closes twice but after closing for the third time it would hang, deleted profile again, same result
    8. Installed FF Nightly = Firefox opens and closes twice but after closing for the third time it would hang, deleted profile again, same result
    9. Deleted the folder found at;
    C:\Users\<User-name>\AppData\LocalLow\Mozilla

    Finally no hang on exit.

    The folder was re-created and seems to be storing temp data, hopefully the issue won't re-occur.
