Too many processes, does not respond to setting!

Posted

I DON'T want 8 Firefox processes right from the start! And I CERTAINLY don't want 4 of them when I have set the limit to ONE!!

I have also checked the dom.ipc.processCount which IS set to one. Firefox 68.0.

ThIs is a F-ing DISASTER!!!

When using 68.0 it shows completely or partially BLANK pages using HIGH resourses.

When reinstalling 67.0.4 i had to create a new profile and I cannot acces my BOOKMARKS!!!!!

Even when putting back 68.0 again I can no longer acces my my bookmarks.

HOW TO REACCESS THEM, I NEED THEM NOW!!!!!

Did throwing salt ever help anyone looking for an answer?

Maybe he could have been more civil, but still there was no need for your throwaway salt.

He has a point, there are people that are not happy that the choice to disable e10 has been taken away.

I work with a homeless organisation that have a number of very low end PCs, that could manage to use FF with e10 features disabled, thanks to a simple config tweak that Mozilla themselves put out there.

Without this tweak they are now paperweights...

I agree, why did they remove the ability to limit the number? If it's a security thing, then give us 2 processes one for your/our security blanket and the other for our needs. I've got a i5 with 12gig of memory 1T hard drive external drives for files, running win7 pro (my choice, it's better than win10). For whatever reason 1 instance runs much better in multiple tabs that I leave idle for a long time. When my resources get to around 33 percent I have to force the 4 firefox instances closed and reopen, and then I'm good for a day or so before I have to repeat the process.

You can limit the number of content processes to 1, but Firefox also has separate processes for the main program, and I think extensions now.
