Why are two instances of FlashPlayerPlugin running under Processes tab in Windows Task Manager?
When I view Windows Task Manager in W7H SP1 on FF22+, there are two instances of FlashPlayerPlugin 11.7.700.224 running. If I "End Process" on one, they both stop and are removed from the list.
Additional System Details
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.03
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0
Seeing more Flash processes is a consequence of running the Flash player plugin in a protected sandbox environment.
By the way, there is an update available, Flash 11.8. http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
