Firefox 68.0 making multiple processes in the Task Manager, can't disable them at all.

Veröffentlicht

After Firefox updated to 68.0 the other day, I have found myself being plagued by it making multiple processes in the Task Manager yet again. I have already tried the following:

1) Already tried about:config to change browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2/browser.tabs.remote.autostart from true to false. It is set, but absolutely nothing has changed.

2) I have tried going into Options>Performance and limiting the Content Process Limit to 1 instead of 4. The setting was saved, and yet it has not changed a thing.

3) Ending these processes only results in my tabs crashing, and reloading them only adds another Firefox process.

But as it turns out here: https://www.ghacks.net/2019/05/17/going-forward-multi-process-cant-be-turned-off-anymore-in-firefox/ Firefox has removed the option to turn this off entirely after updating.

My computer can't handle having more than 1 Firefox process open and I want to disable multiple processes, otherwise everything will lag horribly. Is there any way I can permanently disable the multiple processes?

I'm not sure how to do either of those things, is there a tutorial on how to do that?

You can use the set command to create a temporary environment variable.

  • open command prompt window
  • change to installation directory
  • type "set MOZ_FORCE_DISABLE_E10S=1" and press enter

In Firefox 68+ you can only disable multi-process by creating an environment variable named MOZ_FORCE_DISABLE_E10S and set its value to 1. You can either use a .cmd file to start Firefox or set this variable in the Windows Control Panel -> System.
