When I open FireFox and check Task Manager, there are 5 FireFox.exe executables in Task Manager. Should there only be one needed?
I started checking Task Manager when it takes forever for FireFox to load. The last 4 checks I found 5 EXE files for FireFox. Seems only one should be needed. Tried to send an image under the "upload image" option at this site but it will not upload, though only 41k in size.
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 28.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0
Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).
Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.
