It is quite normal to see three or more Firefox processes running.

  • one process for the main Firefox thread (user interface)
  • one or more content processes, see:
    Options/Preferences -> General -> Performance
    remove checkmark: [ ] "Use recommended performance settings"
  • one process for the compositor thread
  • one process for the WebRender thread when this feature is enabled
  • https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/performance-settings

You can find the current multi-process state on the Troubleshooting Information page (about:support).

  • "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" -> "Application Basics":
    Multiprocess Windows
    Remote Processes

See also the Remote Processes section further down for more detail.

You can use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox title bar to make sure Firefox closes properly.

  • "3-bar" menu button -> Exit (Power button)
  • Windows: File -> Exit
  • Mac: Firefox -> Quit Firefox
  • Linux: File -> Quit

Issues with dragging a link to the Desktop can happen if you made changes to the UAC settings. Try to launch Firefox with the -no-deelevate command line switch.

is there a way to disable the launcher process. with out activating UAC. and what isdeleevate and where do i find it

more options

I am not that computer savvy so i am not sure i fully understand what to do

more options

-no-deelevate is a command line switch that you would have to add to the target line in the Firefox desktop shortcut (leave space before the switch). "<path to firefox>\firefox.exe" -no-deelevate
