There are 223 instances of kmozillahelper running on my system. I have two firefox instances running, two tabs in each, but that doesn't matter. One firefox and one tab - 223 kmozillahelpers. That's 2 GB of memory and much worse, I can't launch anything else. As an example, trying to start yast.

I can't even open another firefox instance. This is a very recent problem.

Chosen solution

Please close. I manually killed the excess processes. Apparently this is fixed in tumbleweed's version of kmozillahelper and I'm planning on upgrading.
