After a recent automatic update my old problem with Firefox Quantum came back. Every time I open Firefox browser I get multiple 4-6 firefox.exe running in the background processes. When I go into details and try to end process tree it crashes my browser. When I open Firefox it starts all over again. I have gone into about:preferences and

   De-select ‘Use recommended performance settings’
   Set Content process limit value to ‘1’ from its default value

I have also gone into about:config and switched browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false. Still have the same problem.
