I upgraded to Firefox 68.4.1, not because I wanted to (v60 was working perfectly for me). Netflix in their never ending quest to break people's access changed the minimum requirement to v65.
Of course, the upgrade broke things. I've managed to get everything working except for my theme. I'm using a theme called earth from space. When I start firefox I see the blank top section of the browser for up to 2 seconds before the them loads. On 56, 57 and 60 which are the last 3 versions I used, the theme loaded so fast I never saw the underlying browser.
I tried a couple of different themes but they are still slow to load.
I've also been experimenting with various performance settings in trying to solve this; Hardware acceleration on/off. Content process limit; Tried 1 - 8. Mind you, 1-8 still runs 5 processes @ ~ 500mb RAM when I have only one tab with my homepage open (I have a server here where my home page comes from. It's plain HTML and nothing else).
Any ideas on why the theme is loading so slowly and why setting performance settings always results in 5 processes?
