Why are there eight Firefox processes when it opens?
What do you have set here? See screenshot

More than one process is normal for the current Firefox. http://www.ghacks.net/2016/07/22/multi-process-firefox/
Multi-process Firefox is codenamed "e10s". https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/multiprocess
jonzn4SUSE, I have "use recommended performance settings" checked. Should I change that?
It's up to you. Like Fred said, this is normal in today's interwebs. Turn it off and see if you can tell the performance difference when you have a lot going on in the window. In today's world of everything running in the browser you have to have a beefier system anyway.

How many Firefox processes are needed as I just checked and it's up to eleven at this point.
jonzn4SUSE I see. I should experiment with the settings and number of processes to see what works best. I'll give it a try.......
Fred, Those articles were very informative. Thank you very much Timmy
There are 13 Firefox processes in my task manager now!!! And 2/3rds of my ram is in use!!! Too funny Timmy
I'm curious to know the specs of your machine. ;-))
