Your screenshot looks normal and the high CPU does not appear to be associated with a Firefox process.

You can visit about:processes in the address bar (Shift+Esc) to get more details about each process.

Reduce the number of processes per site by changing dom.ipc.processCount.webIsolated to 1 in about:config.

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

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

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

You can check the about:memory and about:processes pages for info about all processes. See also the about:unloads page for info about the tabs.
