It is quite normal to see more Firefox processes running.

  • process for the main Firefox thread (user interface)
  • one or more content processes
    you see more content processes when Fission is enabled
  • process for the compositor thread
  • process for extensions
  • process for WebRender when this feature is enabled

There are several toolkit.aboutProcesses prefs on the about:config page to show more info. You can find the current multi-process state on the Troubleshooting Information page (about:support).

  • "Help -> Troubleshooting Information"
    "Application Basics":<be>Multiprocess Windows and Fission Windows
    "Remote Processes" (Web Content)

See also the about:memory and about:processes pages for more information about all processes.

Did you restart and launch FireFox again to see what happens.

Yes, this it's the same. This is the "norm" for a long time - I just finally trying to find out why.

  • you can open "about:" pages via the location/address bar
    this "about:" protocol is used to access special pages
