Why are two instances of FlashPlayerPlugin running under Processes tab in Windows Task Manager?

Posted

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.

Seeing more Flash processes is a consequence of running the Flash player plugin in a protected sandbox environment.
